BikeHub: "Building more roads will not cure congestion, says Sustrans"

Scoot to web site

"New government statistics reveal that motor vehicle traffic has risen by 1.4 percent to 77.1bn vehicle miles.The data was released within the Department for Transport’s Quarterly Road Traffic Estimates. Another report – Congestion on local A roads – reveals that average speed on local A roads has dropped to 24.4mph, down 0.9 percent on this time last year.

Allan Williams, Policy Advisor for Sustrans said:
“Traffic is a major headache for everyone but we can't build our way out of road congestion. According to the Government’s own analysis there’s little evidence of wider economic, social or environmental benefits either.

The key to unlock road traffic congestion is to give people a choice about how they travel by providing safe, convenient and affordable alternatives to driving."
