Getting Wiltshire Moving
Getting Wiltshire Moving

Our over-riding strategy for transportation in Wiltshire will be based around three core

  • It will provide Choice. Over 70% of all journeys to work in Wiltshire are by car. We will seek to provide viable alternatives for residents and employers.
  • It will be Greener. We will seek to decarbonise transport in Wiltshire, in line with the Council’s commitment on the Climate Emergency to make the county of Wiltshire carbon neutral by 2030.
  • It will be Safer. For decades, road casualties had been consistently falling, but there has been no improvement in Wiltshire since 2010. We will deliver improvements in road safety to restore the long-term trend in improving accident rates.

Labour will:

  • Work with local communities and bus operators to improve rural bus services.
  • Where commercial bus services are not viable, we’ll innovate to provide demandresponsive and community-based alternatives.
  • Extend the network of cycle routes within the county.
  • Establish a network of Electric Vehicle charging points throughout the county.
  • Prioritise funding away from new highway projects and into public transport.
  • Invest in road safety improvement schemes to improve accident rates.
  • Extend the implementation of 20mph zones in residential areas.
  • Increase resourcing for road safety education.
  • Prioritise preventative maintenance over inefficient and reactive pothole repairs
