Government must pay

The FTA is calling for the government to fund rail and road infrastructure upgrades needed for the improvement of inland transport links from ports. It’s been estimated that the growth in container traffic across the world will double between 2000 and 2010.

The FTA believes it’s the government’s responsibility to provide greater port capacity and that by not investing, it jeopardises the future of all UK ports, as shipping demand will outstrip existing port capacity.
