DfT publishes one-year-on review of the Transport Decarbonisation Plan

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

The DfT's plan set out the UK’s world-leading ‘greenprint’ to create cleaner air, healthier communities and tens of thousands of new green jobs across the UK.

The progress one year on today shows almost 7,500 extra electric vehicle chargepoints have been installed, supporting the 900,000 green vehicles that are on UK roads, and over 130 new walking and cycling schemes have been funded.

The production of zero emission vehicles alone has the potential to support 72,000 green jobs worth up to £9.7 billion in gross value added by 2050.

To mark its one-year anniversary, the government is launching a new public consultation to accelerate the transition to zero emission travel by phasing out the sale of new fossil-fuelled motorbikes and moped by 2035, or even earlier for some vehicles.

Transport Minister Trudy Harrison said:

Across road, rail, sea and air we have taken decisive action to reduce harmful emissions while enabling innovation and growing the economy.

We have provided certainly to both the industry and consumers through investment to stimulate a new market to reduce the need for fossil fuels.
