M40 Chiltern Environmental Group
There is only one other campaign group pushing for the installation of “Solar Sound Barriers” in the uk, and they are looking at the M40. The Chilterns and South Oxfordshire based group are dedicated to tackling issues of excessive noise pollution on a 20 mile section of the M40 while creating solar energy capacity through use of photo voltaic enabled noise barriers
Last July, they were able to secure money from a Co-operative competition to investigate the feasibility and 20 mile stretch of the M40.
At the request of Cllr Dale Heenan, Swindon Commercial Services have contacted the M40 campaign group to find out more about their work and discuss any opportunities for co-ordination of any local scheme.
