电车前进, the campaigning arm of the Light Rail 过境Association, has criticised the complete omission of any reference to 轻轨列车 or 电车ways in the latest strategy document from the Department for Transport.编者注
‘Low Carbon Transport: A 绿色er Future’7月15日出版,旨在作为政府’减少运输部门二氧化碳排放量的蓝图。

“但是其关于改善城市交通的规定还不完善”的Geoff Lusher说“尽管该文件对新的高速铁路路线做了很多介绍,但并未提及扩展包括轻轨在内的郊区铁路系统,因此更多的通勤者,购物者和休闲旅行者可以选择高质量的公共交通替代。汽车。说穿了,我们’重新交错。整个文档的单词搜索都不会显示单个引用“light rail” or “tram”. We believe that is simply not possible to write 117 pages on 绿色 transport strategy and yet not mention the one form of transport that has been shown to be most effective in getting people out of cars and so cutting their carbon footprints. Light rail is seen as a solution the world over to problems of traffic congestion and urban pollution, which is why the last decade has seen a huge investment in new 轻轨列车 and modern 电车way systems all around the world. In other European countries, including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal and The Netherlands the renaissance of the 电车 has already made a significant contribution to a better quality of life for millions of citizens. Modern 电车ways have proven to be just as successful in British cities, in the relatively few places where they have been implemented, and it is clear that they have a place in many more.
