Urban Transport Group responds to NIC’s transport infrastructure assessment

Mansfield, England

The Urban Transport Group has today responded to the National Infrastructure Commission’s Second National Infrastructure Assessment.

Jason Prince, Director of the Urban Transport Group, said:

“We welcome the Assessment’s recognition that good transport infrastructure is vital for unlocking economic growth.

“If we really want to harness the economic value our city regions offer, it is important that they get the clarity and certainty to deliver - clarity provides the ability to plan, and certainty provides the confidence to invest.

“City regions are already at the forefront of providing public transport in their local areas – and through devolution, are the ones who should make the decisions that deliver the best for their local communities.”
