Responding to the Welsh Government's announcement that a new transport commission will come up with recommendations for transport improvements in North Wales, Silviya Barrett, Head of Policy at Campaign for Better Transport, said:
"Simply building more and bigger roads is not the way to solve transport problems. Wales is showing great leadership by looking at transport in the round, and seeking solutions that work for people, places and the planet.
"Rather than accepting a future of ever-rising traffic, pollution and climate catastrophe, governments should actively plan for a future of good public transport, walking and cycling, so that people can easily choose sustainable modes and travel by car less."
