MAKE public transport cheaper and more accessible – that was the general consensus of a meeting of green campaigners.

Approximately 40 Winchester residents attended the meeting, organised by Winchester Action on Climate Change (WinACC) and Winchester Friends of the Earth, to discuss solutions for reducing congestion in the city centre, and making Winchester a greener city.

WinACC’s Phil Gagg said: “There needs to be a modal shift where possible.

Make it easier for people to use public transport, get around efficiently, and try to drum up appetite for change.

“There needs to be fewer people using private transport, and more using public transport.”
