Looking forward to an appropriate train service along our north / south spine
Looking forward to more integrated transport and better information

Before we can work out where to go, we have to understand where we are now!
If you have a transport interest, please come to our Linking Wiltshire meeting.

Try your Wiltshire and transport knowledge ...


Most of us travel around - by car, bus, taxi, and train ...
... but how much do we know about the country we're travelling around, and the transport servcies we're using for that travel?


This quiz has been set to help you test your knoweldge ... all the data has been gathered during research into the current and future transport (and information system for transport) needs of our county ... helping us be better informed as we work forward for effective transport systems in the future under exciting developments such as LSTF and the next rail franchise. There are many opportunities, but many potential hurdles along the way.

We request your name and email address simply so that we can correlate the results and refer back to your answers should you get in touch with us. You will not be added to any databases. Written and hosted by Well House Consultants - contact details at base of page. This page does NOT use cookies.
