In a page 8 article in today’s Argus the leaders of the four political parties have outlined broad policies to combat congestion and keep delivering our visitors to ensure economic prosperity.
The Labour Group concentrates on park & ride, a new rapid transport system and a continuing improvement in already excellent bus services.
The LibDems suggest a cross party task force to look at transport and also support park and ride. They want to explore the possibility of traffic free areas and suggest that the Lanes could benefit from such a scheme. They are less enthusiastic about rapid transport.
The Conservative group also feel that park and ride in the right place is “essential” and want to address parking charges to make short stays cheaper and have a split tariff on the sea front between winter and summer. A new rapid transport system is a high priority.
The Greens point out that the city wasn’t built to accommodate cars and suggest congestion charging and work-place car parking charges to manage demand for road space. They oppose park and ride.
