Edmund King has most recently been quoted in an article called Stonehenge tunnel route moved by 50 metres after protests. Edmund King said, “Stonehenge's ancient circle, created by the can-do attitude of prehistoric builders, has become a monument to modern-age indecision where plans and consultations to ease traffic congestion have gone round and round. This improvement is long overdue, not only for the millions of holidaymakers heading west but also for the essential businesses that use this strategic route. Reducing congestion near Stonehenge will greatly benefit the environment and the economy.”. Edmund King has been quoted a grand total of 23 times in 17 articles.

Jul 12 2017

It is clear that local authority budgets are being squeezed and highways budgets are almost the first in line to be cut. Drivers will be frustrated that in many councils the additional income from increased parking charges won't be reinvested in improving the state of local roads. Parents may decide that it is safer to drive their children to school rather than walk, which would increase traffic on the roads. It would also create frustration for residents living next to the school as more parents will park on their street.feedback

Councils which have cut school crossing patrols may not have thought about the consequences.feedback

Far too often drivers are viewed by every level of government as wallets on wheels. We think it is time to redress the balance and drivers get the investment needed to bring our roads back up to scratch. Some councils have sought alternatives to switching off their street lights through energy-saving technologies but others have pressed ahead with blackouts despite objections and protests from town and parish councils and residents.feedback

This is definitely an affordability issue. The sharp decline in 17-year-olds learning to drive has happened just as tuition fees have gone through the roof - that's no co-incidence. Many people are now waiting until after university to learn. But it's bad news for parents as it means their adult children are becoming increasingly dependent on 'mum and dad's taxi service,' as they now expect to use their cars as well as live in their homes.feedback

We are getting to a tipping point for electric vehicles. When we get a mass market car that's electric and has a range of 200 miles, that's when we will see real change. Other manufacturers are thinking that this is going to be a game changer.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Tesla

I drove a Tesla Model X all over the place recently and it got me thinking that seriously 'this is the future', thought it felt odd not having to stop to refuel at a garage. Once you get over the fact the Model X SUV starts at about £70,000, you realise that electric really is something that works.feedback

Local authority A-roads have become the poor relation or country cousins in comparison to the amounts spent on motorways and the strategic road network. It is imperative that the status and spending on the most important of these roads is elevated.feedback

Apr 26 2017

Drivers fed up with current cones, congestion, and chaos, will be compensated for delays and have a say in how our roads are run.feedback

Apr 15 2017

We know that new drivers are a higher risk on the roads, therefore we need to better prepare them for real-world driving. These changes will test drivers in a more realistic manner which is essential to improving their safety once their L-plates are removed.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Pollution

Government and local authorities need to deal with air quality issues in a sensitive and scientific manner rather than just demonising all diesels. We are encouraging Government to introduce a targeted scrappage scheme in urban areas to encourage the faster replacement of older buses, trucks, taxis and other gross polluting vehicles.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - Carbon

We think it could have come up with a graduated system that taxes cars according to carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions combined.feedback

Mar 22 2017

Drivers across the country will be frustrated that even after clear promises were made, upgrades to heavily congested roads could be delayed or scrapped altogether. The public should be told which of the 16 schemes have stalled so that they know if they are stuck on a road to nowhere. The Department for Transport needs to ensure the report's findings are acted on with urgency.feedback
