Professors at odds over transport decarbonisation costs – Transport Xtra
Rhodri Clark reveals how a Welsh parliament committee session on how best to make the transition to electrification and decarbonisation sparked a difference of opinion between eminent transport professors
Two academics who advocate measures to reduce car use have expressed contrasting views over the costs of such actions.
Prof Graham Parkhurst, of the University of the West of England, told a Senedd committee hearing on bus and rail in Wales: “It’s going to be very expensive to deliver the decarbonisation of public transport, and the revenues from passengers will be a relatively small part of that
Prof John Whitelegg, visiting professor at Liverpool John Moores University, took issue with the form of words used by Parkhurst.
