High Court blocks challenge to DfT road investment strategy after finding 'no requirement to meet net zero'

The High Court has blocked an environmental campaign group's bid to overturn the government's adoption of its £27.4 billion road investment strategy (RIS), after a judge found there was no policy or legal requirement for all road transport to meet net zero carbon targets and any resulting carbon emissions from the strategy would be "legally insignificant".
