After 8 years of failure on transport, the time for tinkering at the edges is over – McDonald

Andy McDonald MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, responding to Chris Grayling’s speech to Conservative Party Conference, said:

“After 8 years of failure on transport, the time for tinkering at the edges is over.

“Rail is in chaos and the Tories one-click compensation plans are yet another cheap gimmick which does nothing to tackle the underlying problems causing misery to passengers across the country.

“Congestion on major roads has worsened, local roads have fallen into disrepair, the UK is failing on air pollution and we are set to miss the Paris climate change targets. Investment in public transport is how to reduce congestion and make the most of transport investment.”
