Signs planned to encourage public transport?

The UK's motorists could be encouraged to use public transport, thanks to new digital warning signs that are being discussed by the government.

Digital overhead signs may be installed on roads to inform drivers of how long their journeys would take if they travelled via train. It is hoped that this will persuade people to seek public transport and lower road congestion.

Local transport minister Norman Baker said: "On a busy single carriageway road that is normally congested, if you have a sign there saying the railway journey along this parallel corridor is half the time of the road journey people might think of changing to the train."

In addition to removing cars from the roads, these signs may help to reduce the number of roadworks.

New road measures are also being considered in London, where members of the London Assembly are concerned over the safety of the Blackfriars Bridge road.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800582803-ADNFCR
