UTG publish report on local transport funding

View original UTG publish report on local transport funding

Urban Transport Group has published a report on the costs and inefficiencies of funding local transport through ad hoc competitions. The Local Transport Lottery report assesses the implications of an excessive reliance on competition funding for urban transport projects. The research shows how such a reliance impacts local authorities’ ability to deliver value for money and places pressure on authorities and their staff. Jonathan Bray, Director of the Urban Transport Group, said: “The forthcoming Budget offers the opportunity to re-set the approach to local transport funding so that we can make the best use of staff and resources to deliver the long-term solutions to the long-term transport challenges that city regions face.”

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
