It’s campaign time and on May the 3rd voters will choose the future of the city transport.
Transport had been in the spotlight in recent years due to the troubled tram project. Now Edinburgh faces another challenge with European Union strict standards on air pollution. The Green party have highlighted the deadline for the city to reach acceptable air pollution levels by 2015. If the council do not meet these targets the taxpayer will face a heavy financial penalty.
Spokes is an Edinburgh charity organisation that focuses on bicycle transport but also green issues. A hustings was held on Thursday 29th March to question the councillors responsible for this important issue.
