Worcester improvements get go-ahead

Worcester improvements get go-ahead Worcester improvements get go-ahead
A £19,6million plan to improve transport links in Worcester has been given the go-ahead by local transport minister Norman Baker. The government is backing it with £14.2million of funding.

Intelligent transport systems will provide better information for bus passengers and road users. The plan includes real-time information at bus stops. There will also be better railway station access, and road improvements for pedestrians and cyclists.

Baker says: “This scheme will give the people of Worcester more convenient access to the city centre as well as providing an alternative means of accessing the city centre for people commuting by car. The £14.2 million we are putting into this project shows that the coalition government is serious about investing in transport to create growth and cut carbon.”

The work will be completed in March 2015.
