Transport is one of the six priority areas for influencing and informing policy developments and delivery. The direct impacts of transport on biodiversity include: fragmentation, severance, wildlife kills and loss of habitat. These effects are associated with, for example, airports, new transport links or parking areas. In addition, the effects of climate change on transport, and the way we maintain transport infrastructure may have further implications for biodiversity. This report shows which aspects are likely to be of greater concern in the future. It also recognises opportunities for beneficial outcomes in Natural England’s areas of interest.
