TRANSPORT policies must be ownership will continue to grow, said this week.

This created problems but it is "unrealistic to try and force people out of their cars on to public transport," he told the Havering and Upminster industrial council.

Motoring had to be made more comfortable, efficient and safe, at the same time that public transport is improved.

This required a steady shift of capital investment, in other words a substantial programme of road construction.

"If present traffic trends continue, I think there may well be an argument for increasing resources for road building," Mr Howell said.

Public transport had to become cheaper, more efficient, brighter and more attractive and more imaginatively tailored to what the public wanted if they were to be attracted back to public transport. Astronomical subsidies were not the answer.
