The Eddington Transport Study - The case for action - Sir Rod Eddington's advice to Government - December 2006

It is considered that the UK transport system provides the right connection, in the right places, to support the journeys that matter to economic performance. The performance of the UK's transport networks is considered a crucial enabler of sustained productivity and competitiveness. Congestion in urban areas is considered a serious problem. The strategic economic priorities for long term transport policy should be growing and congested urban areas and their catchments, the key inter-urban corridors and the key international gateways, including releasing bottlenecks. Sustained investment targeted at these priorities is considered necessary. Greenhouse gas emissions should also be taken into account and it is suggested that the transport sector should meet its full environmental costs through congestion charging.
