Poll shows public support for rail freight investment

Tags: ,


Almost two-thirds (61%) of people would like to see more freight transported by rail, a new poll suggests.

The findings, of the YOuGov poll suggest that only 2% of people wanted to see more freight transported by road in lorries. 63% of respondents stated that they supported the idea of increasing government funding to allow more freight trains to run on the network. Philippa Edmunds, freight manager at the Campaign for Better Transport, who frequently writes for RTM explained that the results of the survey showed the majority of the public supported moving more freight by rail and less on the UK’s roads and motorways.

“This poll shows that the majority of the public support moving more freight by rail and want more government funding to assist this,” she said.

“The government is committed to reducing harmful emissions and improving air quality, and rail freight is pivotal to this. Rail freight might not be able to vote, but our opinion polling shows that the public support rail over road when it comes to freight.”
