Following a similar scheme led by the Welsh Labour Government, Chichester Labour have called for the creation of a South Coast Metro network.
The Welsh scheme is set to transform existing rail infrastructure increasing train frequency and integrate various modes of public transport.
Philip Wilson, “Such a scheme with vital improvements will be key in alleviating A27 traffic and reducing pollution. Creating vastly improved public transport should be a key priority, especially with the Local Plan seeking to build an additional 10,000 homes in the District.”
Instead of making progress, bus services and routes have yet again been cut back as a result of funding decisions taken by the County Council.
