Having gained the Regional
Transport Board's approval for a £300m New Generation
transport system for Leeds and its commitment of £150m for
its first phase, city transport specialists are now developing
detailed proposals for approval by the West Yorkshire Integrated
Transport Authority and the City Council.
This final detailed business case that
the Leeds City Region has been working on with Department for
Transport officials, will be for a system that provides the optimum
benefits, in terms of routes and vehicles, for it's costs.
Work to date is indicating that the
greatest initial benefits are likely to be provided by a system
running from a major 1500-space Park & Ride site in Stourton to
the south of the city, into and around the city centre and on to St
James's Hospital which, to maximise efficiency punctuality and
reliability, would be segregated as much as possible from other
The route is most likely to be served by the latest
generation of high-quality buses that could be powered by overhead
wires, but could even have the potential for conversion to tram in
the long term."
