Chamber: Cumbria Should Not Be 'The Butt Of Transport Jokes'

People across Cumbria are being asked what they think of the county's transport system, by the county's Chamber of Commerce.

Bosses want local people to take part in a short survey to help shape future changes about road, rail and air travel.

Cumbria’s transport infrastructure has been described by the chamber itself as "the butt of jokes", highlighting the one about "the A590 being the longest cul-de-sac in England".

You can take part in the survey here.

It's been launched in response to the publication of Transport for the North's draft Strategic Transport Plan - a blueprint to improve road, rail and air links across the north of England over the next 30 years.

It's out to consultation until April. 

You can read the chamber's initial thoughts on the draft strategy here and download the 96-page document in full here.

Business Engagement Manager Julian Whittle said: "We know from feedback over many years that poor transport links are a perennial headache for Cumbrian businesses.

"This is your chance to have a say and help us make the case for improvements. Your assistance is much appreciated".
