Local Transport Minister on York funding

This scheme will help York’s economy continue to grow by ensuring that movement around the city is as efficient and sustainable as possible. The £15.3 million we are putting into this project shows that the Coalition Government is serious about both investing in the infrastructure the country needs to drive economic growth and supporting measures to ease congestion and cut carbon.

The Access York Phase 1 scheme was one of the schemes given funding approval in 2011 as part of the Spending Review process. Work can now start on the main elements of the scheme with services scheduled to start operating from the new sites from April 2014.
