transition transport UK
Since giving up my role at the Trust I've been looking for a way forward and I think I've found it - I've set up Transition Transport UK with the stated aim to provide information on both infrastructure planning and finance for modern (post-oil) transport to the rapidly growing Transition network in the UK.
The S&D will be part of this modern transport network. Bath is now a Transition City, as the towns and villages between Bath and Bournemouth take on the Transition model then hopefully they will start to look at ways of connecting themselves.
Transition Transport UK will not only look at heavy rail, but also light rail, tramways, cycleways, canals and bridleways/footpaths. Transition is a very proactive and positive non-political organisation working towards solutions that will address both Climate Change and Peak Oil, rather than looking at them (as many do) as discrete challenges.
