Campaigning to get local bus back


Residents on Styebank Lane and streets in the area received a letter from me and my Rothwell Labour councillor ward colleague David Nagle in October telling them that we’re campaigning for a bus to be re-instated for them that will run into Leeds. We let them know that we had written to Arriva and Metro on their behalf.

Thank you to everyone who got in touch with us, we got a very positive response from residents who welcomed that we had taken up the issue on their behalf.

We have now received a response from Arriva, which informs us that following our lobbying, it will carry out a review of the bus services that serve our area and have said that they will consider the possibility of re-instating a service linking Leeds with Styebank Lane.

The Labour team took up the issue after knocking on lots of doors around the Styebank Lane area chatting to local residents on the doorstep and being told what a big issue it is for people in that part of Rothwell.

Rothwell Labour Party campaigner Angela Kellett  lives nearby in Sandyacres, Rothwell and knows lots of people in this area, so this is an issue she feels very strongly about.

Angela told me: “I’m especially keen to see the Leeds bus brought back to the Styebank Lane area as I know first hand how it has been badly missed. Local people who want the bus back should let Arriva know or contact me, Karen or David Nagle so we can pass it on to Arriva. As vice chair of the Rothwell Tenants and Residents Association I know that local people have been telling me they want the Leeds bus and I’ll be making sure that Arriva know this.”

Although me and David had raised this before with Metro and the bus company it become clearer through speaking to  lots of people in the area just how many people this issue affects and we felt the matter needed to be raised again on behalf of residents so we were determined to try again.  To re-introduce this service would be giving back a lifeline to many locals.

We know there are many people, especially those who are elderly or with a disability, who find it a struggle to walk either to Haigh Road or into Rothwell, and this struggle is increased by the fact that Styebank Lane and the surrounding area is on quite a steep hill.  The Park Lane and Styebank Lane area is served by an hourly service, number nine to Rothwell, but this is an orbital service (Seacroft – White Rose – Pudsey) which does not go to Leeds.

We’re delighted that we have been able to help residents get the unsatisfactory situation with the bus service on Styebank Lane reviewed and will continue to try to make sure this results in the bus service being re-instated.

The review will be carried out in the spring and summer with a view to any changes taking place in October 2014.
