Have Your Say: Make Transport Greener blog1_0

WATAG meetings are currently not being held because of the pandemic. With the extra time on your hands you may be interested in contributing to a government questionnaire on reducing the environmental impact of transport.

The Campaign for Better Transport has written about it here:

and you can fill in the survey here (deadline is 31st August).
