TRANSPORT NEWS: Agency issues demands over coastal route

South East regeneration leaders called on the government for swift action this week to deliver transport improvements along the region's coast.

The South East England Development Agency (SEEDA) has written to transport minister Tony McNulty to demand that key elements of the south coast corridor multi-modal study are carried out.

SEEDA and the South East England Regional Assembly have called for initial results of a Highways Agency study into tackling bottlenecks on the A27 to be available by the spring. They have also demanded that the Strategic Rail Authority works with stakeholders over the next six months to progress the Coastway rail link.

The two bodies urged the government to respond positively to their call for a review of revenue funding as part of a commitment to support a greater role for the bus and coach network along the south coast.
