PETITION FOR £50m NORTH BRISTOL TRANSPORT FUND
I welcome the potential for the Bristol Arena to be built in the Brabazon Hangar, which is in my constituency of Bristol North West. But for that to happen we MUST have new investment to improve local transport first.
I am therefore calling on Metro Mayor Tim Bowles, who has money from national Government, to commit at least £50 million to a new North Bristol Transport Fund.
In the face of continued cuts from national Government, it is vital that the West of England Combined Authority commits to bringing forward transport investment now. Failure to do so risks causing grid lock in North Bristol.
