Despite hundreds more houses going up around Yate and thousands more to come over the coming years, local residents were shocked to learn that South Gloucestershire Council has no long-term transport blueprint for Yate and the surrounding area. So Steve Webb MP and the local Lib Dem Focus Team have launched a 'Let's Get Yate Moving' campaign to force the Council to plan ahead to avoid traffic gridlock in and around the town.
We are calling for:
- A new Park & Ride next to the South Gloucestershire Council offices on the Badminton Road
- For the Yate-Bristol suburban rail line to be included in the electrification project for the Great Western mainline
- Improved bus services, particularly serving the residential areas of North and South Yate, Dodington and Chipping Sodbury
