Rail construction and operational effects on biodiversity and geological interests (ENRR473B)

This document aimed to develop a better understanding of the effects of rail projects on biodiversity and geological interests. It made recommendations to English Nature on how to integrate in its policy advocacy activities and project case-work for this transport sector.

The study was based on the relatively limited literature that addressed the effects of rail projects on biodiversity and geological interests. A review of eight Environmental Statements prepared for rail projects was also undertaken, although this largely failed to reveal impacts or mitigation measures that were specific to rail projects.
