Agreement on a 20 year ‘Movement for Growth’ plan by The West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority (I.T.A.) also gives the green light to Yellow Cars’ future travel pledges for the region.
Darren Thorpe, Yellow Cars Managing Director said, “this is great news for all of our passengers as we can now better plan expanding and improving our services over the next two decades. For the past 21 years Yellow Cars has been there for the people of the West Midlands and we’re excited to drive on better roads well into the future.”
It’s been reported in the national media that £1 billion pounds has been pledged by the Treasury to the new authority and a further £8 billion earmarked for transportation over the next 10 years. News of the acceptance of the plan followed a 3 month public consultation process.
Mr. Thorpe added that, “we’re particularly excited about upgrades to the network of motorways. I made notes on some of the benefits of the plan to our customers already living in specific areas. Walsall and Wolverhampton will enjoy upgrades to junctions on the M6. Sandwell will see new works to improve the M5 and M6 motorway junctions. Birmingham will enjoy improvements to traffic gridlock hot spots and road junctions.”
Finally, the Yellow Cars Managing Direction said, “I echo the sentiments of Councillor Roger Lawrence the Chairperson of The West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority when he spoke of unlocking the full economic potential of the region. That’s what Yellow Cars is all about as we continue to expand for the benefit of our passengers and the next generation with this 20 year strategic transportation plan.”
The award winning Yellow Cars is honoured to celebrate 21 years in business the West Midlands in 2016. The Mayor of Walsall awarded a Yellow Cars driver for saving the life of an elderly passenger. Here at Yellow Cars we believe in the promise of safety and constant innovation. Just like when we invested in the purchase of state-of-the-art breathalysers which we distributed free of charge to pubs in the community as part of our 2016 road safety drive to keep you and your family safer.
