Travel: Sustainable Development

Volume 456: debated on Thursday 1 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether there are plans to extend the Sustainable Travel Demonstration Town scheme; and if he will make a statement. (112266)

[holding answer 31 January 2007]: The Sustainable Travel Demonstration Towns project started in 2004 and we have had the first two years' results of this five-year project. The interim results so far seem encouraging with overall increases in walking, cycling and use of public transport and a fall in car use. We will look closely at whether these results are maintained before any decision is made to extend it.
