This article reports that the government of Great Britain is committed to creating a rural transport system which gives people greater transport choice, improves road safety and conserves the countryside. Transport minister Sally Keeble stressed the importance of public transport at the conference titled Managing Traffic in the Countryside, held by the Council for the protection of Rural England. She said it was important for people to get to and from their local market town and told how better bus services, introduced as a result of increased government funding, were making a real difference on the ground. The minister also stressed the need to make rural roads safer. She noted there was particular concern among residents and others that traffic management measures needed to be both effective and sensitive to their surroundings. To this end, she announced that the Department of Transport, Local Government and the Regions has just led a research contract to the TRL Ltd., which would explore more natural or psychological traffic calming measures. The contract is for three years.
