UK100 calls for clean air fund to tackle air pollution

View original UK100 calls for clean air fund to tackle air pollution

The UK100 group of local government leaders called for a £1.5 billion clean air fund to tackle vehicle pollution. The group, which includes the Mayors of major UK cities, propose using the fund to subsidise between £2,000 and £6,000 off the cost of low-emission vehicles for low income residents and small businesses along with schemes to increase the utilization of public transport. The UK100 call for the government to contribute £1 billion to the fund, with the remaining £500 million to be contributed by the private sector.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
