Call for evidence on winter resilience in transport

12 September 2013

The Transport Committee calls for written submissions on winter resilience in transport.

The Transport Committee is today calling for evidence on winter resilience in transport.

The Committee intends to hear oral evidence in October. Ahead of this, it would like to receive written evidence on the following points:

  • How resilient are the UK's transport networks (including road, rail and air) to adverse winter weather?
  • What lessons have been learned since the severe weather experienced in the winter of 2009-10? What practical changes have been made to ensure the UK is now better equipped to deal with severe weather?
  • How well prepared are the Government, local authorities and transport providers for adverse winter weather? What more should be done to ensure a coordinated response?

We would be grateful to receive written submissions by Thursday 10 October 2013.
 
As part of a scheme to encourage paperless working and maximise efficiency, the Committee is using a new web portal for online submissions of written evidence. Written submissions for this inquiry should therefore be sent via the Transport Committee website - Please click the link here: Winter resilience in transport
