This report explores the relationship between sustainable transport and housing, and the corresponding impacts on the economy and society. This work was funded by Greener Journeys in partnership with the Department for Transport and independently undertaken by KPMG.
This report examines the Government’s plans to tackle poor air quality. The key conclusion is that while it is essential to clean up diesel vehicles, it is also crucial that congestion and the continual decline in urban traffic speeds across the UK is tackled.
The Government will announce its new clean air strategy imminently. In response to the successful High Court challenge it will be tougher and geographically more comprehensive than previous policies. This is justified. The evidence is compelling about the harm to people’s health and premature deaths from NOx emissions.
