Leeds business people give their views on the benefits of NGT

The Leeds New Generation Transport (NGT) trolleybus system is one of the city's key transformational projects. It will create an integrated rapid transport network for Leeds, to support the city's future development, transform public transport and offer a real and attractive alternative to car travel.

Representatives of the Leeds business community, including our very own Head of Yorkshire – Matthew Scrimshaw, explain their reasons for supporting NGT and the benefits they believe it will bring to the city.

Benefits to business include:

  • Improved connectivity across the city and city centre, making it easier for people to travel to work and access major retail, visitor and leisure attractions.
  • Better access to labour markets and employment opportunities creating up to 4,000 potential new jobs.
  • Additional jobs for local firms as a result of the construction, operation and maintenance of NGT.
  • Significantly enhanced land and property values along the NGT route, providing a further incentive for investment and development, based upon the experience of other cities introducing rapid transport systems.
