Warm welcome from the ICE

ICE PRESIDENT Professor George Fleming this week described legislation in the Transport Bill as 'the most significant in decades'.

He welcomed the proposals for road user charging, which he said offered a better way of using scarce road space.

'This will provide major benefits to road users and non-users alike, but only if revenues are swiftly and visibly ploughed back in to improving public transport,' he said. 'If the Government doesn't do this it can expect a major backlash.'

Fleming backed the creation of the Strategic Rail Authority but said it would have its work cut out to sort out the problems created by privatisation.
