Residents are being invited to have their say as West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) develops its Single Transport Plan.

The new plan will be a 20-year vision for developing an effective, efficient and integrated transport network that supports sustainable and low carbon economic growth for the Leeds City Region.

WYCA is keen to invite individuals and organisations to contribute to shaping the plan and has begun a five-week public engagement exercise.

WYCA Chairman Councillor Peter Box said: “The Combined Authority’s ambition is to underpin economic growth and housing development across the City Region by investing £1 billion in projects to develop a quick, convenient and clean, integrated transport network.”

More information, including the emerging core principles for the new plan and a link to an online questionnaire, can be found at www.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/stp-survey.
