SEMMMS Final Report 2001

3.55 Congestion was seen as the biggest transport problem in South East Manchester, but the questionnaire response showed a recognition that building new roads alone would not solve the transport problems. Maintaining and making better use of the existing road network received strong support. The support for Metrolink extensions indicated a willingness pay for high quality reliable public transport, but existing public transport provision was seen to give poor value for money. Workplace parking charges or road user charging in isolation were not popular as solutions.
