The NI Transport Working Group (TWG) is an informal coalition of organisations, serviced by the Northern Ireland Environment Link, who share the common aim of making transport in Northern Ireland more sustainable. This aim is achieved by sharing good practice, discussing issues and latest developments, and providing a platform to develop and advocate shared policy positions.

TWG1 TWG2

 

 

 

 

 

The TWG promotes an integrated, transparent, evidence–based and strategic approach to transport planning and operation. It believes that the application of such an approach at all levels of administration, from the Executive to local councils, will create policy priorities and new investment choices that will stimulate modal change in the travelling public from private car to more sustainable modes of transport.

The TWG believes that best practice transport planning and appraisal approaches, including the proper consideration of cross–sectoral benefits in a number of key areas (including health and well–being, economic development, environmental protection, energy security, social justice, mobility and integrated policy–making) will naturally lead to the development of a more sustainable transport system.

The TWG aims to inform, stimulate and shape the debate around transport and the nature of transport and will work with other NGOs, public sector organisations and political parties across Northern Ireland to try and achieve its aims.

The Transport Working Group Work Programme 2013–2014 can be found here

Priorities for current Programme for Government

  • Further the delivery of a minimum 65% investment in infrastructure and 35% investment in public transport as outlined within the Regional Transportation Strategy over the period 2002–2015.
  • Promote greater use of safer, healthier and more economical modes of travel, whilst reducing reliance on private transport modes.
  • Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, in particular CO² emissions, within the transport sector in line with targets in the UK Climate Change Act and The Europe 2020 Strategy.

They will also undertake to:

  • Run a half–day workshop on sustainable transport and realising TWG objectives
  • Hold one meeting with a key decision–maker on transport issues in NI
