Transport Section 1
Getting back to what we’re good at with better transport
We can make transport in the UK faster, cheaper, and more reliable by building new clean roads and railways. New highways lined with ultra rapid, reliable EV charge points, new urban transport links to connect people to the best jobs.
This will require government investment – but it also means reforms to a planning system that delays new roads – or bans them entirely – and allowing the market to build the EV chargers we’ll need to refuel our modern electric cars. It also means changing the way we build – mirroring best practice from those countries that are able to build infrastructure faster and at a lower cost.
Not only will these changes make life better for all of us by cutting our commute times and making it easier to visit friends and family – but they’ll support good jobs in EV manufacturing and the wider supply chain.
