Surrey CC has lost its high court battle to prevent the M25 being made into the widest highway outside North America. The council asked the court for permission to seek a judicial review, claiming the Department of Transport's decision to widen the motorway a section at a time, in places stretching to 14 lanes, was unlawful and prevented an appraisal of environmental impact.

It claimed the DoT had failed to show proper regard for European law, the Highways Act 1980 and its own design manual for roads and bridges. But on Wednesday Mr Justice MacPherson ruled the council's case was not 'truly arguable'
