Friday 22 Jan saw the public showdown with Damian Collins at Westenhanger Castle. (Thanks to Sarah and Steve for providing the perfect venue). It was a great turnout considering the miserable weather, with 148 cars outside and 300 protesters in the marquee.
Damian Collins talks the talk, but I hope our message is getting through. He did say HE would seriously consider our and other proposals and he mentioned some of the smarter solutions they intend to implement ‘in the future’. But there is still a lot of work needed to convince them to address the causes, that smart technology is a MUST – and freight by rail will help the ever increasing burden on our road networks.
