Bristol should implement a “progressive squeeze on cars” to solve its transport problems, campaigners have been told.
It’s apparently ‘progressive’ now to force people out of their own personal transport and onto public transport, or non-powered bikes, is it?
The call was made at a meeting called by the city’s Civic Societylast night.The debate, titled Transport in Bristol: The Art of the Possible, was organised by the society and took place at Colston Hall.
About 100 people attended, hearing contributions from council cabinet member for transport, Tim Kent, the council’s director of transport, Peter Mann, and Robert Sinclair, the chief executive of Bristol Airport and a board member of the Local Enterprise Partnership.
So, no ordinary people?
They were followed by James Smith, member of the Civic Society’s transport group, who said cars needed to be “tackled” and that Bristol was lagging behind other cities in terms of its transport infrastructure sustainability.
No, just another little get-together of the professional political and lobbying classes…
