UK's First 'Share lane'
« on: March 21, 2008, 08:35:20 AM »
The UK’s first motorway car share lane was opened today by Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly.

The £5.3 million, 1.7-mile lane links the southbound M606 near Bradford to the eastbound M62 towards Leeds.

The Government says that people using the lane can be both green and cut journey times if they carry two or more people.

Kelly said that similar traffic measures could be introduced on another 500 miles of motorway.

The lane gives priority to motorists joining the eastbound carriageway of the M62 and it is claimed commuters will save an estimated 30 to 40 minutes a week.

Ruth Kelly said: ‘This new lane offers motorists the opportunity to reduce both their journey times and their carbon footprints.

'Currently, four out of five vehicles using this busy junction have only one occupant. I hope this new lane will encourage people to share their journeys, which will ease congestion, cut journey times and improve local air quality.

‘The Government is committed to finding innovative ways to get more from our existing roads and improving journeys for motorists.

'We have identified around 500 miles of motorway as potential priority sites for new traffic management measures, which may also include more car share lanes.’
