Medvedev suspends motorway project over forest concerns

Date : 26th August 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has ordered the suspension of controversial plans to build a new motorway through a forest outside Moscow. Mr Medvedev said construction of the road from the capital to St Petersburg, via the Khimki forest, would be halted until a public hearing had been held. The decision came after appeals from environmental groups and, surprisingly, the governing United Russia party.
