MPs invite contributions on impact of coronavirus on UK transport

10.06 | 29 April 2020 |

The Transport Committee is asking workers, stakeholders and members of the public to write to them about the transport issues they face during the coronavirus outbreak.

The evidence is required for a rolling programme of work to monitor the impact of coronavirus on different transport sectors, including local transport.

The work aims to identify areas where more support is needed – and enable MPs to maintain scrutiny of the DfT and key bodies as the crisis continues.

Huw Merriman MP, chair of the Transport Committee, said: “Coronavirus has changed our lives and will continue to make itself felt for some time. 

“Aviation, rail, local transport, national infrastructure projects, the travel industry – those who work in transport and those who use it – have all felt the impact of Covid19.

“As the situation continues to develop, we’re keen to hear of developments and issues across the different transport sectors.  

“You might work in transport, use local services or fear for services. Perhaps you’ve been forced to change travel plans or are concerned about regular journeys you make. We’re asking you to tell us what the issues are.”
