Increasing the amount of road space....doesn't always solve the problem

Re; The Stonehenge Tunnel go ahead....

This quotation from Mark Treasure of  As Easy as Riding a Bike cycling infrastructure blog says it all in his post Polluted-Thinking

'Increasing the amount of space for motor traffic – attempting to ease the flow of congested motor traffic – simply draws in more and more of that motor traffic, and more and more pollution. Expanding space for polluting private motor traffic, or attempting to smooth the flow of it, is the exact opposite of sensible policy. If we’re serious about tackling pollution (and congestion), we have to prioritise the modes of transport that solve the problem, not prioritise the ones that are responsible for it in the first place'
