Projects which will now be considered by the Department in the Spring:

Leeds New Generation Transport
The Department has not yet been provided with sufficient evidence with which to assess the value for money of this scheme, as some of the data is relatively new and cannot yet be verified. However, the Department recognises that a strong strategic case has been made and so has given the promoters until 31 March 2012 to update their business case. A decision will be made within two months of that.

Green light for Leeds trolleybus

Publisher: Department for Transport
Published date: 5 July 2012
Type: Press release
Mode/topic: Roads, Public transport

Trolleybuses are set to return to Leeds after Transport Secretary Justine Greening today (5 July 2012) approved a new £250 million state-of-the-art public transport system expected to generate 4,000 new jobs and boost the West Yorkshire economy.

The new generation transport scheme, delivering the UK’s first modern electric trolleybus system, will receive the bulk of the funding (up to £173.5 million) from the Department for Transport with the remainder (£76.5 million) coming from local authorities. The project has today (5 July 2012) been granted “programme entry status” by the Department for Transport allowing Metro (West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive) to apply for the statutory consents necessary for the scheme. Subject to these being granted work will start in 2016 with the trolleybus fully operational in 2018.

Commenting on her decision, Justine Greening said:

Leeds will have new state-of-the-art trolleybuses that will be faster, more reliable and greener than their predecessors. They will make public transport in Leeds more accessible and attractive than ever before and I know trolleybuses will be transformational for growth and jobs in West Yorkshire.

Investment on this scale in precisely this kind of infrastructure is a recognition of how crucial Leeds and Yorkshire are to the long-term success of the British economy. It is also a great example of what this coalition government and West Yorkshire partners can achieve when we knuckle down together and stick at finding a real solution to today’s challenges.

When the trolleybus system is completed it will run from Holt Park in the north to Stourton in the south, linking with 2 Park-and-Ride sites. The trolleybus will operate in exclusive designated road lanes along more than 40% of its 8.7 mile length.

Notes to editors

In addition to the trolleybus, the department is funding: 2 new railway stations at Kirkstall Forge and Apperley Bridge; the A65 quality bus corridor, which will be completed shortly; and a new southern pedestrian entrance to Leeds railway station.

The Leeds new generation trolleybus is the first modern trolleybus proposal in the UK although they are commonplace in Europe. A trolleybus has many features of a tram - overhead wires, similar vehicle quality - but does not run on rails and so is cheaper and faster to construct.

Leeds trolleybus plans considered by government

Plans to build a £250m trolleybus system in Leeds, the first of its kind in the UK, have been submitted to the government for scrutiny.

The proposals would see a nine mile (14.8km) trolleybus route built from the city centre to park-and-ride sites in the north and south of Leeds.

The scheme was initially approved by government in 2012.

The plans will be considered by the transport secretary who will decide if a public inquiry is necessary.

'Process of listening'
If given the go ahead, the scheme, known as New Generation Transport (NGT), would see Leeds becoming the first UK city to get a modern trolleybus system.

Powered by electricity from overhead wires, trolleybuses run on rubber tyres like standard buses and were popular in the UK during the early decades of the 20th Century.

Leeds was served by trolleybuses from 1911 until 1928 and the last system of its kind in the country, in Bradford, was shelved in 1972.

The Leeds route would link the city centre with park-and-ride facilities at Holt Park and Bodington Hall in the north, via the A660, and Stourton, in the south, via the A61.

The Department for Transport would pay £173.5m towards NGT, with the remaining £77m provided by Leeds City Council and West Yorkshire Metro over a six year period.

Giving initial approval to the scheme in July 2012, the then transport secretary Justine Greening said the system would generate about 4,000 jobs and boost West Yorkshire's economy.

Leeds City Council has asked local residents to lodge objections or register their support for the scheme before a deadline of 31 October.

James Lewis, chairman of West Yorkshire public transport organisation Metro, said a "process of listening" would continue.

"We will work hard to resolve issues wherever it is practicable to do so, but we are convinced the benefits of NGT will bring to Leeds and West Yorkshire will outweigh objections to the scheme."

If the scheme receives final approval, work is expected to start in 2016, with the network operational by 2018.

- Supporters say trolleybuses are quiet, clean and do not pollute the environment

- The Leeds trolleybuses would use mainly dedicated lanes to minimise congestion and improve journey times

- The NGT system in Leeds is forecast to carry 11m passengers in its first year

Leeds proposes to introduce a trolleybus route across its urban area (UK)

Trolleybuses are an increasingly popular choice, as they produce no emissions at street level, and are cheaper and more flexible than trams.

The city council of Leeds has submitted plans to the UK government proposing the construction of a trolleybus system in the city. An increasingly popular form of public transportation, trolleybuses are powered through overhead wires, providing an emissions-free means of getting around without the high costs associated with building a tram network.

With a route stretching nearly fifteen kilometres across the city’s metropolitan area, the system is expected to generate 4000 jobs and boost the regional economy. The total cost is estimated at £250 million (€299 million) with funding coming from both the city of Leeds and the Department for Transport.

Other advantages of trolleybuses are that they are more flexible than trams, able to overtake other traffic and even leave the rails altogether for short periods by running on battery power. Leeds first introduced trolleybuses in 1911, but these were gradually phased out in favour of vehicles using petrol-based fuels, stimulated by cheap oil prices in the mid 20th century. Trolleybuses are therefore a good choice for a more sustainable future.

Metro approves £250m Leeds Trolleybus scheme ahead of public inquiry next month

Transport officials in West Yorkshire have reiterated their commitment to the £250m Leeds Trolleybus scheme ahead of the launch of a public inquiry next month

West Yorkshire Integrated Transport Authority’s executive board met last week and agreed to give continued backing to the New Generation Transport (NGT) scheme.

A public inquiry on the project which starts on 29 April is likely to conclude in June with a final decision on the trolleybus scheme is expected from the secretary of state early next year. Construction could then begin within three years with the scheme operating by the spring of 2020.

Leeds' Cllr Ryk Downes said: ‘This is good news for the city. The trolleybus will help to reduce congestion and emissions in what is the largest city in Western Europe without a rapid transit system.

‘We have been working on this project for a number of years after proposals to introduce a Supertram in the city were dropped. The public inquiry will now look to resolve concerns with the scheme where possible.'

Local bus operator First Group have objected to the Trolleybus scheme arguing the technology is outdated. It has put forward an alternative proposal involving upgrading its bus fleet and improving ticketing and information systems however this was rejected by the Metro transport executive.

First Group said it will still present its case to the public inquiry, arguing the debate is not over.

Trolleybus is set to run from Leeds city centre through Headingley towards Holt Park and a park and ride site beside the A6120 Leeds Outer Ring Road. To the south the route will extend to a park and ride site beside a junction of the M1 and the M621.

63% Vote YES for Leeds Trolleybus

The results of our survey are in, and the majority of Radio Aire's listeners DO support the trolleybus scheme.

As the public inquiry reaches its final stages, we've been gathering your views. Almost 500 of you filled out our survey and 63% said you were in favour of the new transport link.

Most who voted YES, work in the city centre but Councillor Richard Lewis insists it's not just for commuters:

"I think there are huge benefits to everybody. Say if you lived in Holt Park and you got a job in the Enterprise Zone, instead of spending three quarters of an hour, theoretically, getting into Leeds and then another half an hour say, getting out the other side - you'd be making that journey in about 20 minutes.

"The reality for most people who use public transport at peak times along that corridor is their journeys are incredibly long."

37% of you who did our survey voted NO to the Trolleybus, most saying they'd rather see the current transport systems improved, and tickets on buses and trains made cheaper.

The Council says the £175 million pounds of Government money they've secured for the £250 million project can only be used for the Trolleybus but campaigner Bill McKinnon thinks they should have requested the money for something better:

"A more useful use of public money would be to reopen the Otley train station and reopen the Arthington train station so that you would have a good percentage of the people who currently drive from Otley and Bramhope along the A660 to get into Leeds - those people could simply get on the train.

"I'm sure that would cost a lot less than £250 million and be a lot more efficient as well."

Here are the full results of the survey:

Do you support the Leeds Trolleybus Scheme?
Yes: 63%
No: 37%

Do you work in Leeds City Centre?
Yes: 65%
No: 35%

How often do you travel into Leeds City Centre?
Every day: 40%
A few times week: 41%
A few times a month: 13%
Only occasionally: 6%
Never: 0%

For what reasons do you come into Leeds City Centre?
Work: 72%
Shopping: 46%
Going out: 32%
Entertainment: 28%
Tourism: 3%
Other: 6% (Main reason - hospital)

How do you currently get in to Leeds City Centre?
Car: 73%
Bus: 39%
Train: 6%
Bike: 7%
Walk: 9%

Would you use the Trolleybus instead if it existed?
Yes: 62%
No: 38%

Trams are great but they do have their downfalls, especially when sharing road space with other vehicles, as they often have to do in this country.

Drivers sometimes ignore waiting restrictions and cars sometimes breakdown.

When this happens trams can be delayed and passengers are often unable to exit the vehicle for safety reasons.

One of the advantages of a modern trolleybus is that they can overtake other vehicles, and move into an adjacent lane without detracting from the overhead wires. Running on tyres rather than rails makes them more flexible.

If the obstruction is more serious that too may be avoided. Each NGT vehicle will have a backup battery power supply. At the touch of a button the driver can detach from the overhead wires, navigate around the obstruction and then re attach when back on route.
The batteries then recharge using the overhead wires, or the excess energy created when braking.

‘Not suitable for development’: Leeds trolleybus scheme is thrown out

The Government has promised that the £173m contribution it was to make to the scheme will still be spent in the city.

But city leaders are likely to highlight that trolleybus was itself the response to the 2005 rejection of the Supertram project and cancelling Trolleybus will put back Leeds’s transport plans by many more years.

A Department for Transport spokesman said: “After a full public inquiry, the independent Planning Inspector produced a detailed report which said the Leeds Trolleybus system is not suitable for development. We have carefully considered the findings and accepted the clear recommendation.
