Fears for trans­port

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

A CUT in trans­port bud­gets could lead to big hikes in rail fares, more pot­holes and fewer buses, a re­port from the cam­paign for Bet­ter trans­port (cBt) said to­day. train fares could rise by 33 per cent in this par­lia­ment if fares in­creased an­nu­ally by the rate of rpi in­fla­tion plus three per cent, the re­port said. Over­crowd­ing on trains will in­crease with­out ex­tra car­riages while it is vi­tal to prop­erly main­tain the roads, the cBt added.
