£459k Bramley Bus Interchange improvements signed off

Public transport improvements to Bramley’s tired bus interchange have been signed off by council chiefs this week.

The Bramley scheme, which will cost about £459,000, aims to increase public transport usage and manage bus movements more effectively.

A council report approving the delivery on the scheme, says says the work will provide a safer overall layout, and improve pedestrian movement and the general customer experience by introducing better facilities and real-time travel information.

The proposed upgrades include an improved waiting environment and better travel information. Stand D will be relocated to a new road to be built through the grass island off Town Street, with two crossings will be added to create safe passage to the new bus stop.

The works were originally approved last June as part of a £7.4 million package of city-wide transport improvements, but the start of work had been delayed by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Public consultation on the proposal included a public meeting in Bramley in 2019. The scheme is funded from West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s Connecting Leeds programme.

A £554,000 scheme to improve walking and cycling links in Pudsey received the go-ahead last month.

  1. Leeds (according to Leeds Observatory) in 2019 had a staggering 29% of children in poverty. That’s 56,104 children living in poor conditions in households where the basic necessities are unaffordable. Instead of building a POINTLESS £459k new bus exchange for Bramley; why aren’t they investing some if not all, of the above mentioned £7.4m on actually rectifying the issues at home.

    Disgusting.
