Improvements to regional connectivity should focus on sustainable transport

15 January 2020

Commenting on the Government's announcement of a review of regional connectivity including regional airports, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"Improvements to regional connectivity are sorely needed, and with an imperative to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, the review on regional connectivity should ensure a focus on sustainable transport. Better bus and rail connections, including reopening disused rail lines and stations, and better connections with a new generation of transport interchanges will bring social, economic and environmental benefits to communities across the country."
