Bristol transport experts appeal to Government for greater investment
FOUR professors from the University of the West of England – all experts on transport infrastructure – have signed an open letter from 32 UK transport academics to the Secretary of State for Transport, raising their shared concerns about the current state of transport policy and investment.
The hard hitting letter mirrors a similar collective appeal by transport experts a decade ago and calls for the Government to work collaboratively with the transport profession if ambitions for integrated transport are to be realised.
The letter, to Patrick McLoughlin MP, states: "Our cities are simply not equipped to take further growth in road traffic and the benefits of faster journey times on the strategic network risk being lost in greater congestion on local urban roads where the majority of journeys are undertaken."
Professor Glenn Lyons from UWE's Centre for Transport and Society said: "If we are to avoid the accumulation of long term problems in the face of short term challenges, our politicians must draw more strongly on the collective and longstanding wisdom available – the country's professors are ready to engage."
