Deadline on transport

TIME is running out for people in Calderdale to have their say on plans for transport for the next three years.

Metro has been carrying out consultation across West Yorkshire, stressing the proposals are not just about buses and trains.

Metro chairman Chris Greaves said: “Local transport plans are created to ensure that spending priorities are targeted so they have the biggest effect.

“Tackling congestion is a key element to improving the region’s economy which is why we’re looking at schemes such as traffic light priority for buses but it’s also about highway maintenance, cycling, walking and creating better access to leisure as well as to work.”

Consultation runs until Friday and can be completed online at
