“Building more Roads to reduce Congestion drives Traffic up”

Price Tags

Nic Slater posted this excellent three-minute video, produced in Great Britain but with much relevance to the situation with the proposed Massey Bridge. You just can’t build your way out of congestion with roads, and eight out of ten  of these massive projects take out vital ecological habitat, and two-thirds of the projects destroy landscapes that were culturally important.  Road building also means that people move away from town centres where they can cycle and walk.

Sound familiar?
