Restoring land

"We accepted there is an environmental impact and we work very hard to mitigate it to make sure the land is restored to its original condition," said Mr Mercer. "Where we cross under major rivers or roads we try to that by directional drilling or tunnelling so that we do not disturb the roads or river beds in any way."

He said typically where the route crossed farmland or meadows then the scenery should be restored within a year although it could take longer for more sensitive areas.
