Presenting Transport Improvements – Example

Not only is this page a helpful indication of what I would suggest should be done to improve transport in Pudsey, it is also part 3 of a guide into how to present transport improvements. If you want some more information about areas to consider and a structure for presenting transport improvement (which this proposal is based on), please head to the making transport better page.

In late 2016, a consultation was opened into the future of transport in Leeds following the rejection of New Generation Transport (Leeds Trolleybus). I was keen to see the benefits of the funding allocated to Leeds (£173.5m) spread across the city.

As a Pudsey resident, I understand some of the frustrations that are experienced by people travelling around the town. Despite good links to Leeds and Bradford, journey times can be poor because of congestion and difficulties accessing hubs such as New Pudsey railway station.

For journeys less than a mile, walking is the most feasible option. A large part of Pudsey is within one mile of New Pudsey railway station but the structure of the transport system means that most people have to walk out of their way. I created two documents help stakeholders understand the proposal.

Things I noted

I attended a consultation event. It was an opportunity to hear other peoples views. I put forward my proposal and other attendees raised points that I had not considered.

I also noted the language used by some of the people leading the event. Where language is supportive or complementary of your proposal, I would suggest using it. An example of this is calling New Pudsey railway station  a transport interchange.

Would you like to use this structure for your transport proposal
