Concerns over the Great Crested Newt, Pipistrelle Bat, and Meridian Blue have delayed the proposed high speed rail link from London to Birmingham, but now researchers have identified a new species at risk if the link does not proceed. Commuters, they say, are facing multiple threats including loss of their traditional habitats of Weybridge, Surrey and Bracknell to flexible incomers from Eastern Europe and Asia, changes compounding pressures arising from much smaller crops of bonuses and withering of the rapidly-grown civil service. Ian Pod, of the Commuter Action Group, said that the great days when vast flocks of male commuters in their striking grey striped plumage swarmed to and from their feeding grounds in the City would soon be a faint memory.
“Declining species critically endangered” say high speed rail campaigners.
