West Yorkshire residents are being encouraged to give their views on ambitious plans for the future of the region’s transport network, including a proposed new mass transit system.
People can offer their feedback via the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s YourVoice page where they can also put forward suggestions through an interactive map.
In meetings this month, councillors in each part of West Yorkshire will consider the plans and what they mean for their areas. The proposals will also be discussed in a series of online public meetings.
Cllr Kim Groves, Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority Transport Committee, said:
“We have set out ambitious transport plans for the next 20 years and we want to hear from as many people as possible on what they mean for them and their communities and how we could improve them.”
“The feedback we receive will shape the further development of these plans and help us make the case for the significant funding we will need from the Government to deliver them in full.”
“We know a better transport system is a priority for our region and this is an opportunity for everyone to make their voice heard.”
The Combined Authority’s district consultation sub-committees will each discuss the Connectivity Infrastructure Plan and Mass Transit Vision 2040 in meetings this month that can be watched via Youtube. Discussions for our area will take place on Wednesday 24th March at 2PM.
