National Networks National Policy Statement; Bikes get left out – AGAIN!

The BMF has submitted a response to the consultation on the revised National Networks National Policy Statement (NNNPS)

NNNPS??…What’s that? Guidance on evaluating major projects on the road and rail networks.

Anna Zee,BMF political & Technical Services Director says ” I did not feel that we were really qualified to answer the questions actually posed in the consultation, but having actually taken the trouble to read it I discovered that it contained absolutely no reference to motorcycling. It did manage to list 3 forms of ‘active travel’, it even mentioned horse riding but not motorcycles. This was a point I raised at the National Motorcyclists Council (NMC) meeting with Minister Richard Holden last month and that’s what the BMF response is about.”
