Fundamental Leeds is not distracted from longer term transport solutions

Jeff Pearey from JLL responds to the rejection of the NGT project

​Leeds, 12 May 2016 – Following this morning's announcement that plans to develop a trolleybus scheme in Leeds have been rejected, Jeff Pearey, Lead Director of JLL's Leeds office, said:

"With competition between cities becoming more important in shaping the UK economy, an improved and fit for purpose transport network is fundamental to Leeds.

"Investment in NGT could have helped upgrade the city's transport links.  Whilst the news is disappointing, it's now important the city is not distracted from longer term solutions to ease movement within and across Leeds."
