Maintaining Accessibility for all
Support the infrastructure necessary to ensure that ferry, lifeline air and inland waterway journeys can continue.
On-going programme of investment. Principally through Transport Scotland capital grant. The Final Ferries Plan published in December 2012 outlined the intention to set up an Accessibility Improvement Fund. Offering real mode choices is critical to achieving the purpose of sustainable economic growth, particularly across the diverse geography of Scotland. Many of Scotland's places and people depend on these services for both employment and the continued vitality of their local areas. The delivery of these services is subject to regular competitive tender and provides employment for workers across Scotland.
Low Carbon Transport
On-going work to enable further progress with reducing carbon emissions from transport, through supporting better public transport, promoting active travel, freight modal shift and conversion to low carbon vehicle technology. This includes work to develop a Scotland wide electric vehicle charging infrastructure through the UK Plugged in Places initiative.
£200 million [£199.7 million] over 2012-13-2014-15 to implement measures identified in the Report on Proposals & Policies and reduce the carbon impact of transport (including support for active travel, low carbon vehicles, freight modal shift and congestion reduction). Over period to 2022 to meet Scottish Government commitments under the Report on Proposals and Policies. Scottish Government capital budget, as well contributions from elsewhere in the public sector (including local government), and the private sector. This activity is supported by the £50 million Future Transport Fund (£30 million in this Spending Review), as well as other budget lines and external sources such as the UK Office of Low Emission Vehicles. Schemes and measures to meet the climate change commitments for the Transport Sector set out in the Report on Policies and Programmes ( RPP), These proposals together offer real opportunities to achieve reductions in transport emissions through supporting: the decarbonisation of transport, building sustainable communities, and improving the road network efficiency as well as improving business productivity via more efficient use of transport.
