East Riding Lib Dems want to hear from residents about the Labour Council's "controversial" bus lane enforcement plans in Hull.
East Riding's Liberal Democrats have launched a ward-wide survey for those who live on the boundary with Hull, in order to hear the views of local residents, following the recent changes to bus lanes, announced by Labour's Hull City Council.
The survey has been launched with the aim of giving residents who would be impacted a genuine say on this issue that sparked thousands to sign a petition against the move - join the discussion click here.
Commenting ahead of the survey launch, Cllr David Nolan leader of the East Riding Lib Dems, said:
"We all want our roads to be safer for cyclists and our region to be greener and cleaner, but it's clear from the controversy the new bus lane enforcement has caused that this Labour council has failed to engage with the people of Hull let alone those who live nearby to the boundary in East Riding who use the roads on a daily basis.
"We've always been the first to pressure the East Riding Council to promote a greener, cleaner more sustainable region but on this occasion, the way Hull City Council have made this change, while with the best intentions to make cyclists safe, has managed to antagonise thousands of residents living on the boundary of Hull within the East Riding."
