Submitted by: Neil Bibby, West Scotland, Scottish Labour.
Date lodged: Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Supported by: Colin Smyth
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, November 17, 2021

As an amendment to motion S6M-02138 in the name of Graham Simpson (Delivering Promised Road Infrastructure Across Scotland), leave out from "recognises" to end and insert "regrets that car dependency remains the norm in Scotland, partly due to Scotland’s inadequate public transport system; calls upon the Scottish Government to upgrade key routes, such as the A9 and A96, A1, A737, A75, A77, A82, A83, A90 and other vital road links, to deliver improved road safety, journey times and reliability; considers that decisions about investment in transport infrastructure, including roads, must have due regard to road safety, economic and community development and climate impact; further considers that local government requires a fair funding settlement to allow councils and communities to improve local roads and cycle routes, to bring local transport under democratic public control and invest in better local transport and green infrastructure; believes that all parts of Scotland would benefit from enhanced public transport, and calls upon the Scottish Government to support integrated ticketing on public transport, action to reverse the decline in local bus services, the extension of free bus travel to under-25s, the dedication of 10% of the transport budget to active travel, and the restoration of rail services to pre-pandemic levels."
