Bus and Coach News: Further Leeds trolleybus consultation: Metro, the West Yorkshire PTE, ... #bus #coach #diesel

Metro, the West Yorkshire PTE, is holding a second round of consultation over the next six weeks on its Leeds trolleybus proposals, promoted as New Generation Transport. The consultation is part of the process of applying to the transport secretary for a Transport & Works Act Order later this year. “We carried out an extensive programme of consultation events in 2009 before we put them on hold in 2010 while the scheme was part of the incoming coalition government’s spending review,” says NGT project director Dave Haskins. “At that time, while there was some low-level resistance to the scheme, 77 per cent of the 2,600 or so people who filled in a questionnaire supported NGT and 76 per cent of the respondents supported the use of trolleybuses.” The 8.7-mile route will cost £250million.
