Leeds must learn lessons from other cities to ensure the smooth introduction of the city’s proposed trolleybus scheme, says a councillor.
The Government announced earlier this year that the £175m project had got the go ahead.
Coun Barry Anderson (Con, Adel and Wharfedale), who raised the trolleybus issue at the last council meeting, noted Edinburgh had faced serious disruption during the installation of its tram scheme.
He said: “We all support the delivery of the Government-backed scheme it could make a huge difference to congestion on our roads and improve transport links for many people in the city.
“I am keen to ensure that the council has learnt from other large projects of this nature where major new transport schemes have been introduced into large congested cities.”
