A safer, more integrated and better quality transport system has moved a step closer to realization with the publication of the British government's radical and wide-ranging Transport Bill. The bill contains measures to establish the Strategic Rail Authority to make railway regulation more effective. Local authorities would be given a range of powers to improve local bus services, and would be required to prepare five-year plans to improve local transport. There are four main parts to the bill, namely, air traffic, local transport, road user charging and workplace parking levy, and railways.
