Planes, Trains and Automobiles (and other modes of transport)
This week, my Transport anorak has been well worn, in Parliament and outside. On Monday, our Transport Select Committee continued its inquiry into urban congestion. We heard evidence from the car, cycling and tram lobby. All, naturally, want more of a share of the urban streets for themselves. This inquiry is helpful for me as I am currently working to see how we can relieve congestion in Little Common. Traffic has increased by 20% since the Link Road was opened. A by-pass is the obvious answer but there may be other techniques we can adopt.
