Road congestion, it is estimated, costs Britain 15000 m per year; this paper, which was presented at the Institution of Highways and Transportation Presidential Conference at Lancaster in 1989, proposes a number of ways in which Britain's transport infrastructure (road, rail and air transport) can be brought up to date to allow the whole country to be able to compete in the Single European Market. The proposals are; (1) to make long term transport plans to produce a better transport network than our competitors; (2) to increase private sector financing, on top of additional public expenditure; (3) to introduce a new, less prolonged, planning framework; (4) to develop an integrated approach, involving road, rail and air transport, and (5) to investigate the possibilities of road pricing.
