Red light for NGT boondoggle
In July 2012 Justine Greening, transport secretary in the coalition government, said that the Leeds NGT trolleybus scheme would make “public transport in Leeds more accessible and attractive than ever before”.

[JG:] …and I know trolleybuses will be transformational for growth and jobs in West Yorkshire.
But on 12 May 2016, the Department for Transport (DfT) issued a statement saying the scheme was “not suitable for development“.
What a shame that so much money has been spent on this ‘transformational’ boondoggle.
