This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the developments in transport policy in Great Britain since the launch the White Paper A New Deal for Transport in 1998. It suggests that criticisms of why Britain finds itself stuck in a transport-policy traffic jam are entirely valid, and they come at a time when the government stands to waste further resources and opportunities if they are not addressed. The chapter argues that the right policies to pursue are those that deliver benefits in improved access to goods and activities without relying on increasing vehicle movement.
