Lilian Greenwood – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lilian Greenwood on 2016-06-27.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 13 June 2016 to Question 39847, on travel, what the road traffic forecast estimates are for each of the forecast scenarios 2 to 5 for future (a) annual trips by mode per person and (b) average length of trips by mode.

Andrew Jones

The data requested and previously provided for scenario 1 in Question 39847 is not readily available for the scenarios 2 to 5, published in Road Traffic Forecasts 2015.

Estimates of future trips by mode was not produced for all scenarios as the Department’s National Transport Model is primarily used to forecast road travel, and is not typically used to forecast demand for other modes.
