Lib Dems demand Park & Ride facilities for Southampton

Southampton Liberal Democrats are calling on Southampton City Council to create 'Park & Ride' facilities for the city, to reduce traffic in the city centre and improve local air quality.

Cities including Portsmouth, Winchester and Salisbury already have Park & Ride services used by locals and visitors, whilst a new Park & Ride facility for hospital staff has been announced for part of the Adanac Park site just off the M271 on the outskirts of Southampton.

Environment Spokesperson Alexander Clifton-Melhuish comments:

"Southampton desperately needs to tackle its poor air quality. However, it is abundantly clear that the Labour-run council is pursuing a Clean Air strategy that will, at best, just about meet legal minimum requirements, whilst offering workers, visitors and residents few viable alternatives to driving into the city centre.

"Liberal Democrats demand better than the timid proposals laid out by Labour in the Clean Air Zone consultation.

"Rather than charging some vehicles to drive in the city, as Labour are planning, we believe the Council should offer a viable, affordable alternative to drivers - namely, a Park & Ride".
