Getting Bath back in the grooves.

With a Clean Air Zone coming into force – and much talk about schemes to restrict through traffic in residential areas – there’s a local pressure group pushing now for the return of a more environmentally friendly form of mass transport.

Trams beat jams say members of the Bath & Area Tram’s environmental conservation organisation who are holding a one-day conference – to push for their re-introduction – at Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution in Queen Square on Saturday, February 8th.

There will be presentations from industry professionals and politicians from 10 am until 4.30 pm.

Could this be one way out of Bath’s traffic and environmental issues?

I caught up with Dave Andrews, who is the Chair of the organisation, over coffee in Bath’s Covered Market and asked what they were hoping to get out of their one-day meet.

 

Thanks to Bath Covered Market’s  Time Out Cafe for letting bus shelter from the rain!
