Transport Hubs Are Working Says Kramer

Transport Hubs Working

Transport Minister Baroness Kramer believes efforts to help the UK’s drivers travelling to and from public transport hubs to save on fuel consumption are working.

Kramer has also challenged the public to make it their New Year’s resolution to join the increasing numbers of people who are choosing healthy, more environmentally friendly methods of getting to work.

She said: "Real life journeys on public transport tend to be more complicated than just a single trip on a train or three stops on the local bus.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for people to choose greener ways of getting between each mode of transport."

Following the publication of an action plan by the Department for Transport in 2013, public funds have been made available to allow people to choose greener ways of travelling to and from public transport hubs.

The project has already seen £14 million invested in two new state-of-the-art bus interchanges in Rochdale and Mansfield, as well as £14.5 million in cycle parking facilities at railway stations across the country, which has seen the number of cycle parking spaces double since 2010.

In the summer the Prime Minister announced plans for cycle-proofing roads so that all new Highways Agency trunk roads and improvement schemes will be designed with cyclists as well as motorists in mind.

As part of that, the Highways Agency is also spending £20 million to improve existing infrastructure for cyclists on the strategic roads network.
