Major shake-up of bus services planned to beat congested roads

View original

Richard Guttridge has reported that National Express said changes to timetables around the borough may be needed due to the level of congestion on the roads. A consultation has been launched to help transport experts judge where changes are needed including some services in Sandwell, Wolverhampton and Birmingham. It is the first major review of bus services in Dudley for almost a decade, during which time National Express said congestion has increased on the borough’s busiest routes, leading to longer journey times. Commuters and bus passengers are being encouraged to have their say on the future of bus services.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
