The Green Party vision is to re-vitalise and re-own public transport as well as encouraging cycling and walking. Problems of congestion and parking are simply caused by too greater dependence on private cars - the more on the road the greater the air pollution.
In our more rural areas I will campaign for the creation of cycle paths, both to connect villages and our towns. This will encourage more cycling and be far safer than risking life and limb on the highway. This initiative, in turn, will lead to more healthy lifestyles and cut down on visits to the doctors.
As the responsibility for our Highways falls within Essex County Council's remit the Green Vision is for more environmentally friendly, low carbon buses along with supporting car sharing whilst allocating sites where electric cars can connect to charging networks.
