Plans for a Trolleybus scheme in West Yorkshire have moved a step forward today.
An application for a Transport and Words Act Order has been submitted. This will give Leeds City Council and Metro powers to build and operate the system. The application will be considered by the Secreatry of State, will then decide whether to order a Public Inquiry, which is almost certain to happen in Spring 2014.
The £250 million scheme aims to improve journey times or commuters along the 14.8km It should create up to 4,00 new jobs.
Members of the public and organisations have a period of 42 days, from 19 September through to 31 October, to lodge objections or register their support for the scheme.
