Chancellor George Osborne’s decision to fund the largest programme of investment in roads in half a century in today’s Spending Review will do little to boost the UK’s economy, according to Sustrans Policy Director, Jason Torrance: “Investment in infrastructure is key to stimulating the UK’s economy, but the government is mistaken if it thinks large scale investment in new roads is anything but a drain on the taxpayer. “Investment in infrastructure that prioritises walking, cycling and public transport and takes the two-thirds of journeys under five miles off our roads would transform local economies and increase people’s travel choices. “By providing people with healthy and affordable transport options the government would dramatically ease congestion, improve our health and save the economy billions.”
