Transform today welcomed today’s publication of the consultation on the Scottish Government’s 20% traffic reduction route map.
Transform director Colin Howden said:
“The evidence is clear: we’re not going to hit our climate targets without traffic reduction. So it’s great to see the Scottish Ministers promote road traffic reduction as a centrepiece of its climate strategy for transport. ‘Reducing the need to travel’ — or the ‘Avoid’ in Avoid-Shift-Improve — has always been at the vanguard of the sustainable transport critique, and so it’s imperative that we now get the Scottish Government to deliver on this.
“We’re in particular pleased to see the commitment to road traffic demand management in the route map.”
The route map is now out for consultation until 6 April.
