There was a consultation event this evening at Ralph Thoresby School in Holt Park about the proposed trolleybus scheme. The scheme involves running trolleybuses from the city centre to a terminus at the Holt Park District Centre. The Holt Park terminus does raise concerns for many about the possible future conflict between the uses of the car park for shoppers as opposed to commuters.
During the event, NGT project manager Andrew Wheeler gave a slideshow presentation which highlighted something many may have been unaware of, namely that section 6.6 of the March 2012 NGT Entry Business Case Submission states that for services 1 and 6
it has been assumed that the frequency would be halved between Holt Park and the city centre
whilst for the 95 it
is assumed to be entirely replaced by NGT.
Not the best news for the more isolated residents in Tinshill and Cookridge who do not own cars?
