The Lib Dem transport plan for Wetherby and Boston Spa

by Wetherby Liberal Democrats on 15 November, 2019

Lib Dem transport plan for Wetherby and Boston Spa

  • Protect free car parking for the continued prosperity of Wetherby and Boston Spa
  • Improve safety around the York Road flyover in Wetherby
  • Develop a Wetherby park and ride to ease congestion at the Riverside car park
  • Campaign for a fair share of Leeds City Council’s additional bus funding
  • Press for improved bus connections with York – perhaps in the form of a Wetherby-York circular travelling from Wetherby to York, Tadcaster, Boston Spa, Wetherby in both directions
  • Assess demand for better bus connections to Garforth rail station
  • Control speeds on the A659 into Boston Spa and support Boston Spa Parish Council plans for a more pedestrian-friendly High Street
  • Consider traffic restrictions for North Street, Wetherby, dependent upon how the impending Racecourse housing development affects traffic flows in the town
  • Encourage cycle use with more bike racks and enhanced cycle routes
  • Press for the speed restriction that Leeds City Council missed – a mix of 20mph and 30mph on Windmill Road between Clifford and Bramham
