Traffic Bill tackles congestion symptonms not causes - Thurso

December 11, 2003 12:00 AM

John Thurso MP, Liberal Democrat Shadow Transport Secretary, has cautiously welcomed the Government's Traffic Management Bill, published today (Friday 12th December), but warns that the reality may be an over-centrist approach.

He said:

"The Government has introduced a number of interesting ideas, but is still trying to dictate from the centre.

"Traffic tsars and jam busters will only address the symptoms, not the disease. The causes of congestion must be tackled at source."
