Strategy, what strategy?!

2019-10-28There are many failings in transport, especially for cycling. The total lack of strategy is plain at all levels.

Transport for the South East (TfSE) wants to plan strategic transport across the South East and is consulting from now until 10 January 2020. The consultation documents are here

TfSE draws together Councils, Local Enterprise Partnerships, businesses, transport providers and some stakeholder groups.  What are they going to come up with? The scenario put forward by the TfSE results in a reduction in cycling and walking by 7%!

It is essential that sustainable transport and cycling infrastructure gets much more investment if we are ever going to have a cycle-friendly region.

Join with others in working out how to influence this strategy and get the best result! Attend this half-day meeting at Gatwick organised by the Transport Action Network, a new organisation assisting people and groups calling for sustainable transport in their local area.
