The Urban Transport Group has today published its asks of Government on Brexit and urban transport, based around four broad categories of people; funding and investment; the policy framework; and place-based impact.
Jonathan Bray, Director at Urban Transport Group, said:
“It is not in our role to take a view on Brexit one way or the other, however, as transport authorities it is our role to assess what its implications might be and to let Government know what we think it should be prioritising for urban transport during any negotiations or preparations. We have therefore written to the Department for Transport setting out our key concerns and asks in relation to the many ways in which Brexit might affect urban transport authorities including on our staff, our funding and the future wider policy context in which our members will be working. This builds on the existing dialogue we have had with Government during the Brexit process so far.”
