#journaal correspondent Daisy Mohr loopt weer eens achter de ontwikkelingen aan en kan alleen maar zeggen dat de 'explosie enorm was'. Daar heb je dan een correspondent voor. Er zijn meerdere uitspraken van officials die iets zeggen over oorzaak.

There is a huge amount of false and misleading information about #HS2 on social media. Below is a myth buster thread which corrects some of the most repeated misconceptions about the project…
Myth 1: ‘HS2 only saves 20 minutes to #Birmingham’. FACT: #HS2 services will call at 25 stations in England and Scotland connecting 30 million people. It also frees up space on the existing network for more frequent stopping local services benefiting those who may never use HS2.
HS2’s budget is spread over 30 years and evens out at less than the annual roads budget. We will support 30,000 jobs at least 2,000 of which will be apprenticeships. The arrival of #HS2 is spearheading economic growth and is expected to create nearly 500,000 jobs around stations.

Intéressantes réactions autour de cette décision (purement économique). Paris-Clermont-Ferrand de centre à centre, de Chatelet à Jaude, c'est moins de deux heures de différence entre le train et l'avion.

Avion 72 kg eqCO2 par personne. Train intercités à peine plus de 2 kg.
A noter qu'avec des turbopropulseurs l'écart d'émissions se resserrerait légèrement sans doute.

Le cas de #Clermont - Orly et de #Hop illustre bien les enjeux autour du plan de reprise économique. Que soutenir, que subventionner ? Cf. rapport annuel du @hc_climat #climat
Là on a une activité aéroportuaire bénéficiaire de nombreuses subventions publiques (pas évidentes à décompter visiblement), rentable pour l'exploitant privé (44 M€ en trois ans sur la région mediacites.fr/enquete/lyon/2…).

There’s been a surge in walking and cycling in the #pandemic. Government has promised extra billions. It’s what @TheGreenParty has campaigned for, for many years. So how is it looking in #Sheffield?

A THREAD ...
To set the scene … since the 1960s, Sheffield had been developed to encourage the private car. Politicians competed for the motorist’s vote.

democracy.sheffield.gov.uk/mgAi.aspx?ID=9…
The £2 billion, 25-year #PFI contract with #Amey failed to enhance safe pedestrian crossings or walking routes, safe cycling facilities, safe dropped kerbs for wheelchair users, safe routes to school.

It was a contract to keep roads just as they had been 25 years previously.

❓ Le confinement a-t-il été bon pour le #climat ? Quels plans de relance pour quels objectifs climatiques ?

👍 Lisez le rapport du @hc_climat pour « accélérer la #transition juste, renforcer notre résilience aux risques sanitaires et climatiques ».
hautconseilclimat.fr/publications/c…
🤔 Les mesures prises pour lutter contre la crise sanitaire ont eu comme conséquence des réductions des émissions de GES. Elles auraient chuté de 15 à 30% durant le confinement en #France (selon les degrés d’incertitude). C'est positif pour le #climat ça ?

⚠️ Oui mais :
1️⃣ « La baisse des émissions de GES [...] repose entièrement sur une sobriété imposée et temporaire des déplacements et de la #consommation, ce qui ne présente aucun intérêt pour la #transition bas-carbone. »

@AnnaJerzewska The #transport dimension of the agreement shouldn't be neglected. Without a solution for haulage & air freight in particular, I don't see disruptions being minimal or lasting just a few weeks. It will be equally critical for everyone to have been able to prepare adequately. 1/
@AnnaJerzewska What's at stake won't just be border delays, however problematic that might be. Those that won't have been able to prepare will NOT be able to send their goods or receive goods across the border. Boarding or access to the terminal will be denied without the right formalities. 2/
@AnnaJerzewska Preparing can only work if companies have the space, bandwidth & means to do so + depends on having clear processes & expectations defined. We're not there yet & will need to get there very quickly for the end of the transition to happen as smoothly as possible. 3/

With only a few days to go before the most comprehensive #lockdown announced by GoI comes to an end, participated in a VC with Hon PM to discuss the exit strategy to deal with fallout from #COVIDー19 Crisis & ways to kick start the #economy. Made the following suggestions.(1/n)
1. TESTING: Use Rapid test kits to segregate the people into red, yellow & green zones. Empowering employers to test their workforce, will reduce the burden on Govt and create green zones of productivity and help get economy back on track. (2/n)
2. #supplychain: They are extremely important to get the economy moving even in a partial manner. Allowing trucks to #transport goods and other #materials is vital for the #economy. The Govt might also consider ensuring Road side facilities for the drivers' #welfare. (3/n)

South Africa’s economy slipped into its 3rd #recession since 1994 in Q4:2019, shrinking by 1,4%. This followed a contraction of 0,8% in Q3.

#StatsSA #GDP #economy
7 of the 10 industries contracted in Q4:2019. Transport and trade were the main drags on overall activity. Finance, mining and personal services registered positive growth.

#StatsSA #GDP #economy
The primary sector declined by 0,4% in Q4:2019. #Agriculture experienced its 4th consecutive quarter of negative growth, falling by 7,6%, while mining growth was driven largely by platinum group metals, iron ore & gold.

With the #UKCoordinationGroup & #EPlenary about to adopt a resolution on the EU-UK future relationship, here are some elements which would be of great help to integrated supply chains & logistics on both sides of the border @davidmcallister @berndlange @CHansenEU @EP_Trade 1/
1. 1st, a #transport agreement is an absolute must @davidmcallister @berndlange @CHansenEU @KarimaDelli : without an agreement, there is no fallback to allow traffic by road, rail & air freight to continue. Without it, planes won't fly & a very small number of EU & UK vehicles 2/
(trucks & vans) cld ever cross the border relying on a very limited number of ECMT permits (wouldn't even cover 5% of the traffic). The situation is just as serious for the island of Ireland since #transport is not dealt with in the Protocol part of the withdrawal agreement 3/

Disappointing to see #trade only mentioned in relation to anti-dumping & level-playing field measures + 0 tariffs & quotas in @MichelBarnier speech. Surely negotiators could do better, even in 10 months. Industry will need more than that, on both sides @StefaanDeRynck 1/
0 tariffs & quotas is important but not sufficient. You need to ensure industry can actually benefit from it (Rules of origin!). Something @Kommerskoll knows something about... Considering how prod & #supplychains are integrated, industry needs + than bilateral cumulation 2/
For #customs, a bare min. is to seek to retain the UK in the EU safety & security zone so that entry & exit summary declarations are not required. That's in line with the EU security coop objective & is vital for accompanied roll-on roll-off (Dover-Calais, Dublin-Holyhead...) 3/

🚨 #Safety #culture tweet thread 🚨

Invited by @SafetyClubUK on behalf of @SaRSociety (thanks teams !) I’ve just had a thought provoking day thinking about all aspects of safety culture, across #healthcare #aviation #defence #transport #nuclear
and more
scsc.uk/e631
But what did I learn ? What hit the 🎯?

Here’s a mash up of some of the best lines of the day...

✅How can you get it very right, right up to the point you get it badly wrong?❌

(Apologies for any mis-quotes @PatrickWaterso1 and others in team
@SafetyClubUK

✅❓Foster a questioning attitude❓✅

A “never event” is an event that should never happen, in healthcare and elsewhere. And yet they do...

Quelques éléments chiffrés et graphes pour compléter mon intervention sur le #ferroviaire et le #climat au colloque de l’@AFRA sur "Le train est-il un mode de #transport propre ?"

A dérouler ⤵️⤵️⤵️
"Propre" ? Non, tous les modes ont un impact sur l’environnement (même ceux qui se revendiquent 0 émission…).
➡️D’ailleurs, sur le CO2, le train a longtemps été + polluant que la voiture (env 3x plus en 1950), et l’est moins seulement depuis le début des années 60.
Mais depuis, le ferroviaire a largement réalisé sa propre transition énergétique
➡️Fin de la machine à vapeur (très inefficace) début années 70, qui était majoritairement au charbon
➡️Augmentation du remplissage des trains (nb de voyageurs ou t/train), env +70 % de 1960 à 2017

We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.
Read the review in full here: bit.ly/2BsqDqf
On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom

Oh @cmrlofficial . Why so averse to learning? New stations, same old access problems. #Senior #Joyride thread - I spy with my jaundiced eye. #ChennaiMetro #A11y #Fails @DisabilityIndia

Who would have thunk!
British hauliers will need licenses and permits to be able to drive on European roads. In a no deal scenario there will be no way of getting UK goods into Europe!
Yup! This is not #Scaremongering but #facts
#BrexitMadness
The market access for British hauliers under a No deal scenario will only cover 3% of the needs.
#BrexitMadness #Transport
Check this thread where two experts on trade discuss the problem:
Take a look again at the situation on the Border with Turkey: Trucks driving into EU will need permit from every country they need to pass!
#CustomsUnion means free movement of goods but not trucks.
