The bypass route (a dual carridgeway) will travel through open countryside around the edge of Linslade / Leighton Buzzard and then head north to Milton Kenyes.
There are several ancient trees on site which will be felled.
On Monday local people held an early morning protest and scared away the Bulldozers that day. Over 40 people turned up to the protest which was locally dtriven but bolstered by activists from Oxford including several Newbury Veterans. Shortly after the protest a bannner appeared in a tree next to the main road reading "No New Bypass".
Unfortunately on Tuesday only half a dozen activists were able to stay in the area and while some direct action did take place the surveyors mostly worked unhindered.
It is hard to say exactly when trees will be felled but many have been marked so could be imminant.
The protest site is focused around the B4032 Linslade to Soulbury roads between Dollar and Valley farms. You can also walk a mile or two from the Linslade / Leighton Buzzard train station which has direct trains to London.
