Stoke-on-Trent City Council has unveiled its new ‘Transport Vision’ for the city
The programme sets out a series of proposals and future plans for improved road, rail and bus services.
These include the creation of ‘smart’ roads on the A50 and A500, continued investment into pedestrian areas and changing the way bus and rail services handle fares.
It is being developed in partnership with the Department of Transport, among other funding bodies.
Councillor Jack Brereton, cabinet member for regeneration, transport and heritage, said: ‘This is about ensuring we have the transport we need to support more jobs and increased homes in Stoke-on-Trent.
‘Traffic flow is a big issue and [the proposals are]about helping to address congestion and improve both our road and rail connectivity. Better connecting all of our communities, opening up new opportunities for people to access jobs and improve quality of life.’
The plans will be considered by the council on May 16th
