York gets £4.7 million extra for Transport

I was delighted to see today that York’s bid to the Sustainable Transport Fund, which was submitted during the final days of the Council’s last LibDem adminstration, has been approved.
Government Minister Norman Baker – who was lobbied by local LibDems when he visited to the City earlier in the year – has authorised a £4.7 million grant to the City.
The money will be invested in reducing carbon emissions, stimulating economic growth through
influencing travel behaviour and encouraging modal shift.
