View from the Ministry: the transport question

We’ve seen many recent technological revolutions in our lifetimes—now it’s time for the next transport revolution. We’re making the biggest investment in the railways since the Victorian era: a third runway at Heathrow, and the “Road To Zero” strategy which will make the UK the best place to drive an electric vehicle.

We have made a commitment to Northern Powerhouse Rail and are spending more than £13bn through to 2020 to transform transport across the north. We are investing in the Great North Rail Project and the TransPennine Express franchise, to double the capacity of the network with state of the art trains, longer carriages with more seats for passengers and more services by 2020.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect's September issue: Twenty-five years after the Oslo Accords, Israeli politician and former Knesset speaker Avraham Burg and journalist Donald Macintyre explore how the idea of a two-state solution to the Israel/Palestine conflict has diminished, with Burg arguing that a one-state solution is the only way forward. Jane Martinson visited the offices of the UK’s biggest-selling newspaper—Metro—to find out how it has risen to the top. Adam Tooze charts the ups and downs of the euro and argues that decisions made by the ECB have hampered the currency during its first 20 years in existence. Elsewhere in the issue: Michael Blastland suggests that early diagnosis isn’t all it’s made out to be and that many people have endured unnecessary suffering in an attempt to live longer. Wendy Ide examines the life and work of director David Lynch as she reviews his new memoir, which offers a glimpse behind the curtain.
