The Department of the Environment. Transport and the Regions (DETR) has commissioned research into the Green Travel Plans which were a major feature of the Government White Paper on the Future of Transport. The study will: • look at the costs and benefits of the plans to employers; • identify barriers to their implementation. The findings will be published in a draft guide by April 1999.
