Put road charging at heart of new road policy says ten-year plan chief

The Government should grasp the nettle and put road pricing at the heart of a new roads policy, a former senior DfT civil servant said this week.

Willy Rickett says there is not enough discussion about future  roads policy. “The vast majority of travel, including a lot of our public transport, takes place on the roads, so [transport] policy will have to say as much about this as about runways and high-speed rail,” he says in a paper commissioned by the RAC Foundation.
