Makes me laugh these days when they talk of pollution, congestion, too many cars on the road etc. They place heavy parking fees, consider ‘congestion charges’ etc to try and deter motorists.
Heres an idea...
Provide good public transport and people might just leave their cars at home. How many people commute from oughtibridge and beyond into Sheffield? A rail link would take so much pressure off the roads but, of course, cost is the issue. Well councils and governments can’t have it both ways.
They find how many £billions for cross rail / cross rail 2 (being planned) even a new tunnel under the Thames perhaps. The cost of extending supertram would be minuscule in comparison. Tram/train has already proved a success in the trials, get serious about extending it now - because as it stands it won’t be too long before our roads will grind to a halt.
