star this property answer text <p>Local transport funding is directed at highway authority level, in this case West Sussex County Council, which includes Mid Sussex District Council. The Government is investing over £95m on local road maintenance and small scale transport schemes in the County up to 2021. In addition, West Sussex benefits from access to £238m Local Growth Funding (LGF) over the same period which has been secured by the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Examples of this LGF funding include £17m towards the A3200 Burgess Hill Link Road and £13m towards a scheme to realign the A29 in Bognor Regis. The Department is also addressing missing links on the A27 by undertaking substantial improvements at Chichester, Arundel and Worthing.</p><p> </p><p>On the rail network, the Department is working with stakeholders to develop options for the redevelopment of Gatwick Airport station. In addition, the Thameslink Programme is delivering significant benefits to the Brighton Main Line which serves Mid Sussex. Investment in new trains, London Bridge station and the Thameslink core means that from 2018, the Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) franchise will be able to deliver a major improvement to rail services.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Government recognises the environmental benefits of rail freight and we are committed to supporting the long-term growth of the rail freight industry. Government’s Rail Freight Strategy, published in September 2016, sets out a shared vision for how rail freight can increase its share of the freight market, and encourage modal shift from road to rail. As part of this strategy, Arup were commissioned to assess the potential to reduce carbon emissions through greater modal shift from road to rail.</p><p> </p><p>In response to the Government’s ambition to improve the carbon performance of the railway, the Rail and Safety Standards Board is undertaking a research project examining the options for decarbonising rail freight. The result of this research will inform future policy decisions in this area. Government is also working with industry to produce up-to-date emissions data from freight locomotives, so that we can better understand the environmental impact of rail freight.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

The design of parts of the East-West cycle superhighway which runs from the City to Parliament Square was modified following public consultation in order to reduce its impacts on other road users. Transport for London will be monitoring these impacts carefully, but as the cycle superhighway in question has been operational for less than a year it is too early to reach any definitive conclusions on this.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Buses play a vital role as the backbone of our public transport system and are key to a healthy growing economy. We want to see the bus industry thrive and are introducing a Buses Bill which will provide local authorities and bus operators with a wider, more effective range of tools to improve local bus services. The Bill will include arrangements to allow commercial bus operators to work more effectively in partnership with local government and other local stakeholders.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, the Government decided that financial support for bus services provided through the Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG) system – around £250m a year - should be protected as part of the 2015 spending round, preserving millions of bus passenger journeys. Around £200m of that is paid to individual bus operators, according to how much fuel they use in running their services. The remaining funding is paid to local authorities to help support bus services in their areas. DfT is reforming BSOG to make it more effective, and plans to publish details of changes to the system in early 2016. This should improve the grant’s effectiveness in supporting bus services, and provide better value to the taxpayer.</p>
