Responses to Strategic Road and Rail Consultations pdf icon PDF 82 KB

To consider the report of the Principal Transport Planner, Solent Transport, detailing a summary of responses submitted by Solent Transport during the 2017/18 year on strategic road and rail issues.

Minutes:

The Committee considered the report of the Principal Transport Planner detailing the responses to consultations submitted by Solent Transport during the 2017/18 year on strategic road and rail issues. 

 

The following points were raised to be included in the current rail consultations:

 

·  Refurbishment of trains was overdue.  First Class seating needed to be reduced and the spaces used for general seating to be reconfigured to avoid wasted spaces.

·  Links between towns and cities need to be more frequent, not a priority to be a fast service.

·  Modal shift priority should be to get people off the roads and onto public transport.  Need for the rail and bus services to be joined up and help with the problems. 

·  Mobile ticketing and finding the right ticket (split ticketing) needs to be more efficient across the network. 

·  Smart technology needs to be introduced quicker with an opportunity for rewards to encourage usage.

·  Need to incentivise peak travel where possible

 

RESOLVED:

 

(i)  To note the previous consultation responses made during the 2017/18 year; and

(ii)  To note the suggested content in the report to the two current rail consultations and include comments made at this meeting.
