Transition Bath’s Submission to Parliamentary Inquiry into Urban Congestion

Transition Bath has submitted evidence to the Parliamentary Inquiry into Urban Congestion. Our evidence suggests solving the problem is more than a simple matter of improving traffic management, and that congestion is a symptom and cause of deeper issues within our society, including issues with social cohesion, the quality of the natural environment and is even potentially one of the causes of the current ‘NHS Crisis’.

Our Transport Group’s primary recommendation is to include a direct and dedicated representative of walking and cycling on the Department of Transport’s Board – something which is currently absent. Our comprehensive response which provides much more detail is available here.
