'Transport Experts proved correct' ... shocker!

Hard to believe I know - but apparently transport experts who predicted that traffic congestion would get worse on the Forth Road Bridge after tolls were scrapped have been proven to be correct :-(

Shocking! - see here for the details.

I quote: "The figures will fuel the debate over the impact of road tolls on congestion, suggesting that charges do discourage drivers from using their cars. They also suggest that experts who told the Government last August that scrapping the tolls would worsen traffic congestion were correct."

Never mind - they may just have to be re-introduced to pay for that rather expensive second road-bridge ... which even makes Edinburgh Trams seem cheap ... unless the fabled Scottish Futures Trust can magic up over £4billion?

Choices, choices ...
