Kim Groves, Chair of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority Transport Committee, said: “Our ambitious transport plans represent a bold investment in our region’s future. We want as many people as possible to have their say so we can improve them and make the strongest possible case to Government for its support.

“These online public meetings are an opportunity for people to find out more, ask questions and offer views about how these plans will benefit their communities and West Yorkshire as a whole.”
