Key issues for UK road transport

07 February 2024 - Lunch meeting - Login for venue

Bill Esterson MP, Shadow Transport (Roads) Minister

As the Westminster war drums signal the coming general election, The Industry Forum was delighted that Bill Esterson MP, Shadow Roads Minister, could join us to lead a round table on ’Key issues for UK road transport’. There are, indeed, a lot of issues including managing a rapid switch to electric passenger vehicles, fixing the plague of potholes, moving freight from roads to rail, coping with the chaos caused by the cancellation of the Manchester leg of HS2, and transitioning to an integrated transport system. It was clear that Bill Esterson is brimming with practical policy ideas and would be keen to get on with them, after the small matter of the general election. The meeting was hosted by Uber and Tim Aldham, a public policy manager for Uber welcomed guests.
