A 280 character Transport manifesto

It’s often hard to summarise just what we’re trying to achieve but highway engineer and blogger Mark Philpotts has managed to do just that in a tweet that’s been described as a 280 character Transport manifesto.

Build cycle tracks and pedestrian crossings on main roads. Filter through traffic from residential streets. Default urban speed limit of 20mph. Default rural speed limit of 40mph. Pursue a policy of motor traffic reduction. Stop building new roads and car-dependent developments.

Mark, who was one of our speakers at the 2016 West Sussex Cycle Summit, expands on what this means in a new blog post. Well worth a read.
