Telford & Wrekin Council in low carbon travel scheme plans

A new "low carbon, low cost" transport programme is set to be launched by a council in Shropshire.

Telford & Wrekin Council, which has secured £3.5m in government funding, said the initiative would include a new park and ride service for Ironbridge.

The Travel Telford scheme also includes a new walking and cycling route, from Stafford to Newport and Telford.

Businesses will be helped to become more environmentally-friendly as part of the council project.

Schools will also be involved, as the scheme aims to create "the next generation of safe cyclists and pedestrians".

The park and ride initiative, which would also have services to Much Wenlock, will start in June.
