I've put forward a bold proposal to expand the Fylde Coast's light rail network. Using mothballed routes and convertible under-used rail lines, I want to see tram services deliver new connections for Thornton and Fleetwood and to vastly improve frequencies for South Fylde Passengers.
The new 'loop' would connect communities to the national rail network, help workers reach new job opportunities in the Enterprise Zone, and reduce traffic congestion on our roads. Light rail costs less to deliver and brings real environmental benefits. This, of course, should not come at the expense of continued investment in our roads and I will continue to push for major capacity improvements and pothole repairs.
I's love to hear your views on the scheme to ensure it serves the needs of our local communities by filling in the on-line survey below.
