Traffic in the Park


The Peak District National Park is one of the most beautiful places in Britain but, at certain times of the year, a trip to the countryside can become a stressful and unpleasant experience. The Park Authority receives more letters complaining about being held up in traffic than on any other matter, and the increase in traffic – from visitors, local people and from vehicles passing through – is preventing people from enjoying the Park. Over the last 15 years, traffic has grown by 60 per cent and it is believed that the level will rise even more.

Martin Doughty, chairman of the Park Authority, said, 'If we don't do something now, it'll get much worse. The Park's a special place and most people agree that it shouldn't be spoilt by pollution. But we also realise that cars are essential for many people. We're not going to prevent cars from coming into the Park but we have to find ways of managing the problem. One possible step is to stop unnecessary traffic from passing through here – we want cars and lorries to stay on the motorway. Another step is to improve public transport. We're re-opening a local railway line and we hope to persuade people to come to the Park, and to travel around it, by bus, coach or train.'
