On rail, off road

Reconstruct and maintain our railway lines that were taken out by the government which instructed Beeching to axe much of a wonderful transport infrastructure and heritage constructed in the 19th century. Rail for goods and passangers. 

Why the contribution is important

To reduce the number of cars on our roads all burning irreplacable fossil fuels. A train can take so many more people than a car. A goods train can haul so much more weight than a lorry. Smaller vehicles powered by clean energy can be used at the start and terminus to deliver the goods to destinations.

    More trains. Less cars. Reconnect remote areas as much as possible.

    We need to divert tax breaks from oil and gas companies and use it to invest in our railways and public transport, along the way we create thousands of new jobs.

    When the Norbord factory near Inverness expanded, there was an excellent opportunity to take loads of lorries off the A96.

    The rail line runs alongside the factory and in any other country there would have been incentives to take the logs to the factory by rail.
