Queens Coronation
This is a recent picture of what was the Coronation plantation - planted for Victoria's coronation - She actually planted one of the trees. What you can see above is the complete destruction of this site, ready for the tarmac!

Why are we doing this?
This site will be used to inform ALL of the implications such a road will have.

Such as:
1.Regional air pollution will be increased
2.People using the bypass footways, cycle paths and bridle paths will be subjected to more air pollution, and it will take longer, and be less attractive
3.A school next to the bypass will suffer more noise and air pollution
4.Green belt and the city's green wedge will be affected
5.A large chunk of Alvaston will have its links to the nearby Elvaston Park & castle (where DH Lawrence's Women in Love was filmed) cut off by the bypass
6.Elvaston park itself will be noisier & more polluted
7.Air pollution & traffic congestion into Derby will increase, as the route will become more "attractive" to commuters
8. where the bypass is to link into Raynesway, traffic congestion will increase (moving the problem?)
