YORK has been given the chance to bid for a share of a £840 million Government fund to upgrade public transport links outside the railway station.

Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, which includes City of York Council, is to receive £50,000 to develop bids for improved links between suburbs and city centres.

York Tory council leader Ian Gillies said the announcement was “fantastic news” for York, and the funding would allow the council to develop proposals to deliver its full vision of highway proposals for the front and rear of York Railway Station.
