Former councillor John Bale is calling for the trolleybus scheme to be scrapped. In a letter published in today’s paper, he describes the trolleybus project as a “timid and parochial approach.”
He says that we need a “steel on steel transport system” which will decongest the roads. He ends by saying:
The need now is for political leadership of the kind demonstrated by Councillor Procter, not humble acceptance of second-best solutions.
As well as being a former councillor, John Bale is Emeritus Professor of Construction Management at Leeds Metropolitan University.
