On December 11, 2020, Transport Action Network, an environmental advocacy NGO, filed a suit arguing that the UK government's National Policy Statement on National Networks must be reassessed in light of more ambitious climate targets. The policy statement, made in 2014, set the strategy for the UK's road building programme. According to news reports, TAN alleges that significant changes to climate policy since 2014, including legally binding targets to reach a net zero carbon economy by 2050, necessitate a review of the policy.
