The HRE Group is an alliance of walking, cycling and heritage campaigners, civil engineers and greenway developers acting to safeguard threatened disused railway structures. Highways England, acting for the Department for Transport, has plans to demolish or infill hundreds of structures, compromising future greenway schemes by blocking or severing the routes they span or carry.
RR has sent a letter of support to the HRE Group. Graeme Bickerdike from the HRE Group has asked if the club (and individual members) could post letters of objection when (or should) further planning applications be lodged for inappropriate permanent infilling of bridges. The RR Chairman will do this and will also make individual members aware of the issue via our usual club communication channels.
This RR page is dedicated to the Press Releases and associated articles issued by the HRE Group.
