New Generation Transport for Leeds drop-in session

A drop-in session in which students and staff members can find out about plans for New Generation Transport (NGT) in Leeds will take place today (Tuesday 12 February) in LUU from 11.30-1.30pm.

NGT will be a modern, 14.3km trolleybus which will run on rubber tyres like regular buses but be electrically powered from overhead wires, like tram. Trolleybuses will provide a reliable service and improved journey times.

The proposed route of trolley is Holt Park, Bodington Park and Ride, West Park following the A660 round the back of Headingley Centre, back on to the main through Hyde Park Corner, pass the University of Leeds, Arena, City Centre, Clarence Dock, Penny Hill (Hunslet) on to Stourton where another Park and Ride is planned. 

There will be cycling implications which project officers are working hard to address as far as possible, with meetings are already taking place with a Council run / lead cycling forum.

There will be at least one officer at the drop-in who will be able to answer questions on cycling related issues, and others more general about the NGT route.
