It is looking highly likely that the Conservative party will regain power in the UK with the biggest winners clearly being the SNP in Scotland. However what will another 5 years of Conservative rule look like in terms of transport, below is a snapshot from their manifesto.
- Deliver the biggest programme of investment in roads since the 1970s
- Deliver the biggest investment in railways since the Victorians, including 850 miles of electrified railways
- Reform strike laws, including on the transport network
- Start work on High Speed 2 rail lines and continue development for a “HS3″ Leeds-Manchester link
Only time will tell but at the moment it’s simply a case of better the devil we’ve known for the past 5 years.
