Roads to Nowhere

Campaign for Better Transport welcomes new sustainable transport campaigner

6 January 2016

Bridget Fox has been appointed as sustainable transport campaigner at Campaign for Better Transport.

Bridget will lead on the charity’s roads and sustainable transport work and specifically the Roads to Nowhere campaign, which opposes damaging road-building schemes.

Bridget Fox said: “I am really pleased to be part of Campaign for Better Transport. I am particularly looking forward to promoting alternatives to unnecessary and costly road-building schemes and to working with councils and campaigners to help address local transport needs more sustainably.”

Stephen Joseph, Chief Executive at Campaign for Better Transport, said: “We are delighted to welcome Bridget to Campaign for Better Transport. She has a wealth of experience that will be invaluable to the team.”

Bridget came to the Campaign for Better Transport from Thorncliffe, a leading planning public affairs agency, where she was an Account Director working on new homes and renewable energy. Prior to Thorncliffe, she had a career as a project manager in library and information technology, as well as serving for eight years as a frontbench councillor with a transport and environment brief.

Bridget is a lifelong campaigner on environmental issues, from opposing gravel pits to introducing recycling schemes and improving road safety, and in 2006 won a National Transport Award for her local campaign work.

Bridget replaces Sian Berry, who left the organisation in December.
