Southampton in Top 10 Worst Congested Cities in the Country
Data produced by Tom Tom has placed Southampton into the top 10 most congested cities in the country. For residents of Southampton and in particular Bassett this will come of no surprise, the systemic lack on investment in infrastructure providing an alternative to the car has been decades in the making.
Southampton Liberal Democrats are committed to investing in a Park and Ride system immediately and to campaign central government for the funding required to build a tram/metro system over the medium term.
Bassett Candidate Richard Blackman commented:
Labours plans to borrow Park and Ride from the Hospital are typical of a local Labour Policy, unambitious and relying heavily on others to sort their problems. We would look at a multi-site Park and Ride Solution to ensure that visitors to the city, especially those using the Cruise Terminals, can contribute to reducing the demand on our roads and help with the Air Quality issues that are a blight on the city.
