Prioritise local transport: a community-focused plan

Mike Wood MP, the Conservative candidate for Kingswinford and South Staffordshire, announces his plan to improve local transport connections in the West Midlands.

By using funds relocated from the High Speed 2 (HS2), Kingswinford and South Staffordshire will get their fair share of the Government’s £8 billion Road Repair Plan. Through his diligent work, Mike secured this government funding for a new tram line that will link the constituency to Dudley and Birmingham and other long-term local transport improvements.

Already, Staffordshire is being provided with £285,903,000 to upgrade public infrastructure, helping people across South Staffordshire and Kingswinford benefit from transport improvements that matter most to local people. To ensure his plan works for everyone in the area, Mike has worked tirelessly with the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, and the County Council to establish cross-boundary investments into transportation routes. By enhancing public transport and upgrading local bus links, Mike is helping level up our communities. 

Mike Wood MP said:

“Good transport links are essential – not only to allow people to get to work, take trips for leisure, or to visit with family and friends, but also to make our area more attractive for business investments. For this reason, I will continue to work diligently and make sure Kingswinford and South Staffordshire get the transport links it needs."
