Following the Launch of his BIG Bus Survey and his tour of the Wansbeck Constituency via public transport, Ian Lavery is continuing his fight for better local transport connections, integrated services and real, significant Government investment.
Whilst Mr Lavery is focusing on every part of the Wansbeck Constituency, he has started by focusing on specific areas where provision is poorest. Initially, this has seen Cambois, North Blyth and the Sleekburn area be targeted by Lavery as he sets out the case for, as he puts it, “Transport for the people, not for profit”. Mr Lavery has released a video specifically naming these areas as in need of proper funding from central government and has also said that an integrated system of joint up services and increased bus routes could benefit many residents in communities like these.
Speaking after releasing the video, Mr Lavery said; “People in Cambois, North Blyth and Sleekburn deserve the same level of accessibility, public transport and infrastructure investment as anywhere else in the country. In this series of videos, I am exploring each area of the Wansbeck Constituency that struggles most with these issues.”
