Better transport infrastructure needed in the south east says regional assembly

Better transport infrastructure is needed across the south east to boost economic growth, the South East England Regional Assembly warned today.
Between £37bn and £47bn of investment is needed over the next 20 years, the Assembly says in its South East Plan.This would cover greater integration of regional transport networks and better public transport to reduce car use, congestion and pollution.Assembly chairman councillor Keith Mitchell said: 'The plan insists that infrastructure needs to be in place before or at the same time as new development takes place.'The challenges we face to improve the transport network are partly due to underinvestment in the past.'
