GOOD NEWS FOR THE 114, 24A AND 109A
Following the Conservatives taking control of County Hall, Andrew Snowden was appointed as Lead Member for Highways and Transport. He has been leading on a major investment programme for buses across the County – especially in isolated rural areas where there is limited access. But there is good news here in Hoghton with Wheelton where Andrew lives and represents.
Andrew said "I was delighted to be appointed Lead Member for Highways and Transport and I have already written in that capacity to Chorley Council confirming that the new Conservative Administration will continue the County’s share of the subsidy that pays for the 24a and 109a weekend and evening services that run through our area – this is only bus service in the County to receive a subsidy from County for evening and Sunday services".
Furthermore Andrew has been working with Officers for plans to greatly improve the 114 service – serving a much bigger area of Clayton North and more regular buses.
Andrew continued "It’s great that I have a role where I can help shape the subsided transport in our area. Whilst we are investing more in supporting services across Chorley, budgets remain tight and making sure that we get the best service for the most residents is what I want to achieve."
