Sustainable travel show on the road

Businesses and staff in south east Northumberland will be learning about the benefits of sustainable travel all this week as a roadshow makes its way around the county.

Sustainable transport programme Go Smarter Northumberland is promoting greener and healthier transport, including cycling, walking, public transport use and car sharing.

Visiting business parks in south east Northumberland, the Go Smarter roadshow will show staff how small changes to their daily commute can have a positive impact.

Go Smarter Northumberland provides advice and guidance on a number of sustainable transport initiatives with some of the most popular being walking, cycling, public transportation and car sharing.

Car sharing, or car pooling as it often referred to, has become increasingly popular in the North East and Go Smarter Northumberland’s Share Smarter initiative is one of the schemes encouraging people to buddy up in the car.

The Go Smarter roadshow will be visiting Ashwood Business Park and North Seaton Industrial Estate in Ashington on Thursday, February 26, Manor Walks shopping centre in Cramlington, on Friday, February 27, and Dudley and Northumberland Business Park on Monday, March 2.
