Time to spend on transport in our region

Have your say

From: Frank Wright, Lyndale Grove, Normanton.

IT’S time that all Members of Parliament within a 10-mile radius of Leeds got together and told David Cameron that Leeds is one of the largest cities outside of London and deserves a proper transport system.

I would start with an underground line from the train station to Leeds Bradford Airport.

Crossrail in London has eight boring machines working on it and all are nearing completion of the tunnels.

We would only want two of these machines in Leeds.

So all you MPs, whatever party you support, for the sake of your great city, get it sorted. And no excuses.

I SEE that there is a bid for more cash to improve the A64 road from York to Scarborough (The Yorkshire Post, July 2). I support this bid and would remind government that there are many other roads in Yorkshire that need upgrading.

The ring road north east of York is a nightmare and could be improved by sections of dual carriageway, to allow the overtaking of slow moving vehicles, removing the need for the whole road to be dual. This would save lives and money.
