SEMMMS Final Report 2001

“3.51 Generally, the measures can be described as either ”carrots‘ or ”sticks‘ . Not surprisingly, the ”carrot‘ measures proved to be the most popular. The measure with most support was better maintenance of roads and footpaths (46%). The next was extending Metrolink (35%). Better bus services (28%), cheaper bus and rail fares (28%), building new roads (26%), and increasing the capacity of existing roads (21%) were also popular measures. It is notable that building new roads received a high response, but other items were more favoured.”
