The Eddington Report recommended that government led investment decisions be
focussed on comparing the benefits of different transportation options rather than the
justification of individual schemes.

The Transport Capacity study, sponsored by Invensys plc and researched by
Management Consultancy Credo, identifies those areas where investment in the
transportation infrastructure will generate the greatest increase in the movement of
people and freight in the UK.

The results compare transport options on a people on a (or freight tonnes) per hour
basis. This method is more transparent than more complex cost/benefit modelling,
and reveals what many believe to be a clearer road map for the further investment in
UK transportation systems.

The key findings presented at the press conference will cover both the Road
and Rail environments and include;

- The factors that affect Road and Rail capacity now and in the future.

- An examination of the methods, together with their relative merits,
that can be used to increase transportation capacity.

- Key findings that will clearly define those areas where investment in
the Road and Rail infrastructure will provide the greatest capacity

The results are surprising and are sure to re-ignite the Transportation
investment debate in the UK.
