Electric transportation infrastructure
Government investment in major infrastructure projects is a proven method for economic stimulus in challenging financial times. Now is the moment to invest not in new roads or more bridges or high speed rail services but a genuine, forward-looking way to future-proof our infrastructure and to get ahead of the transport curve, not just try to catch up to it: I mean the changes necessary to make mass electric transportation a practical reality.
The government should spend billions of pounds – and soon – to create domestic charging stations, lanes and signage for driverless cars, electric-only mass transportation vehicles and more.
Why the contribution is important
This is vital for our ability to meet challenging carbon targets, represents an immense opportunity to stimulate economic growth and can make us a world-leader in designing transport in the face of climate change.
