star this property answer text <p>The Bus Services Act 2017 provides the tools that local authorities need to improve local bus services. It allows Mayoral Combined Authorities to franchise bus services and local authorities to develop partnerships with bus operators to take the actions which they’ve identified locally to incentivise uptake of public transport. Bus Open Data powers in the Act will require bus operators in England to open up information about routes, timetables, fares and tickets in real time for passengers by 2020. These improvements aim to improve journey planning and help passengers secure best value tickets. The Government is also investing record levels in the U.K. rail network, as part of the biggest rail modernisation programme for over a century</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is working to address the environmental impacts associated with HGVs by encouraging the development and uptake of cleaner fuels and vehicle technologies.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Transport’s £20m Low Emission Freight and Logistics Trial has over 300 vehicles demonstrating a range of new low emission technologies on UK roads. In February £1m of grant funding was awarded to three technology providers to support the accreditation testing of vehicle retrofit technologies, in particular for HGVs and coaches.</p><p> </p><p>From 1 September 2018, DVSA enforcement staff across Great Britain have been checking lorries for emissions cheat devices. Cheat devices mean a lorry can produce up to 20 times more dangerous emissions. The national rollout of checks follows a successful year-long pilot. During the pilot, DVSA enforcement staff caught 449 emission cheats at 5 sites across the country.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government continues to take the unacceptable actions of Volkswagen extremely seriously. However, given that the vast majority, if not all, of the potential wrong doing is likely to have occurred at Volkswagen AG in Germany, it is for the German Government in the first place to take action. The Department will assess the prospects of taking action in the UK, once the German investigation is complete and based on any available evidence.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since wearing seatbelts became mandatory in 1983, there has been a sharp fall in the total number of people killed while driving. Seat belts save lives and the laws we have in place requiring people to wear seat belts are there to save lives. We are grateful to PACTS for looking in considerable detail at what lies behind the disproportionately high number of people incurring fatal injuries while not wearing seat belts. We are currently considering their recommendations and the range of tools at our disposal to increase seatbelt wearing.</p> more like this
