Letter: Long-term answer to congestion.
Dear Editor, - There appears to be a strange myth that the UK can't build itself out of a road congestion problem. How about the example of mainland Europe ? In the UK we build too little too late, hence the roads fill up quickly. In France, Germany, etc, there is long-term thinking and investment. Also, how about much of the non-urgent UK freight being transferred to the railways?
Road pricing is just another cheap way of the government being seen to be doing something about road problems but in reality it is just another source for increased tax
