Geography at Key Stage 2

Unit 20:

Local traffic – an environmental issue

slide2

Unit 20: Local traffic – an environmental issue

What is a bypass?

A bypass is a road which is built to reduce traffic in the centre of a town by providing a short cut around it.

This means that drivers wanting to go through the town do not have to go into the centre and create traffic problem.

The pink line shows how a road could be built to bypass Tornton.

Unit 20: Local traffic – an environmental issue

Where is the by-pass located?

The bypass is being built through the countryside, just outside Torton.

The building of the bypass will involve building through fields, and some trees will have to be cut down.

Why might people disagree with the route of the bypass?

What effect do you think the building of the bypass will have on the local environment?

Unit 20: Local traffic – an environmental issue

Why is the construction of the by-pass an issue?

Building the bypass will cause a certain amount of damage to the countryside, as it will be built through fields and woods, and the machinery will create pollution.

BUT…

It will reduce the amount of traffic in the town centre of Tornton, which will reduce the amount of noise and pollution that the residents have to put up with.
