Transport Select Committee Meeting

  • Met Robert Flello MP at Westminster today; Robert sits on the Transport Select Committee and chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Freight Transport.  He was interested to hear of our experiences and challenges bringing freight back onto passenger trains and clearly shares our view that rail can play a much bigger role in helping to combat road congestion and the growing pollution problem in our major cities – especially London.

    As a result of our very productive discussion we have been invited to make a written submission to the Transport Select Committee outlining our views on how rail can tackle urban congestion.  We therefore aim to highlight some of the initiatives that are being planned or under development and, most especially, why making better use of our resources and infrastructure can cut costs and pollution.
