A Government sponsored report urges more action on creating a integrated transport system so that more people use public transport and importantly for us get on their bikes
Publish date:

The chairman of a Government appointed panel of influential scientists, which today published a report on sustainable development, urges the Government to calculate the true cost for future generations of today's environmentally-damaging behaviour.

Speaking on Radio Fours Today programme this morning, Sir Crispin Tickell, said: "You can't tell people not to use their cars until you have got a proper public transport system going, but if you want to live in a healthy city, you want to certainly reduce the amount of cars and get people to use their legs more to walk or bicycle.

"If you don't do this, you are going to get heavily congested cities, more and more people breathing in unpleasant fumes and everything getting much worse than it now is.

"That will certainly happen if you don't have an integrated transport policy.
