Yorkshire infrastructure ‘needs investment’



Have your say

The creaking state of critical services in Yorkshire is laid bare today (Thursday) in a new report calling for urgent investment in transport, energy and flood defences.

Major roads and rail are given a higher “need attention” rating while water is the region’s only part of Yorkshire’s infrastructure deemed “adequate for now”.
