Richard Hebditch from the Campaign for Better Transport has written about the Coalition’s record on transport so far. This is what he has to say about the government’s transport strategy as a whole:
“There are also some big unanswered questions on transport policy from the coalition, reflecting some of the tensions between the two coalition parties….
“The second question is whether there is a long-term strategy for transport beyond just the high speed rail proposals. …It goals are limited to cutting carbon and supporting the economy without a meaningful description of what this means for the complex range of bodies involved in development and delivering our transport system.”
And as we’ve said before, HS2 doesn’t even help them cut carbon.
