The third ‘problem set’ was that of the impact of transport externalities on social sustainability. Reflecting the desire to ensure ‘joined-up government’, some quite insightful statements were made on the impacts of transport patterns on health, social polarization and urban regeneration. One of the biggest criticisms of Conservative policy was that transport – and even each individual mode within the transport sector – was treated in isolation from interconnecting activities and policies. To counter this, Labour’s early statements made much of two issues in particular, namely health and social exclusion.
