Plans for second W Yorks trolleybus route James Lewis.

Plans for a second trolleybus route have been agreed by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority – before the controversial first route has been given government approval. The second route would run between Leeds and Wakefield by 2025, and is part of a £1.4billion programme of transport investment including improvements to the road network and to train services.

The chairman of the WYCA transport committee, James Lewis, says: “This is an ambitious programme designed to meet the objectives we set out when we established the Combined Authority and we are committed to ensuring it is delivered.”
