Cycle Lewes responds to Transport for the South East’s draft Transport Strategy

The draft transport strategy for the South East has been produced by Transport for the South East (TfSE), a partnership of local authorities, business groups and transport bodies formed to speak with one voice on the region’s transport priorities.

The strategy says that with the right investment in our region’s transport network the South East’s economy will more than double over the next thirty years – from £183bn to between £450bn and £500bn per year – creating an additional 500,000 jobs, boosting quality of life and access to opportunities and helping cut the South East’s carbon emissions to net-zero.

However, together with other cycle groups in the region, Cycle Lewes has serious concerns about the document as TfSE predicts rise in car ownership and reduction in walking and cycling.
