Shadow Transport Secretary, Mary Creagh and Luke Pollard PPC for Plymouth Sutton & Devonport, preparing to cycle to a meeting with transport leaders in Plymouth
Mary Creagh, Labour’s shadow transport secretary visited Plymouth to experience the city's interconnected transport system for herself. Labour led Plymouth city council have invested in roads, cycle lanes and other modes of getting around as they see that the transport network is integral to not only keeping the city moving but to its economic stability, as has been highlighted recently with the collapse of the Dawlish line.
Mary arrived by train, seeing the fragility of the rail connection to Exeter and then caught a local bus through the city. She took the ferry from the Barbican to Royal William yard before cycling over to the Council House for a meeting with Luke Pollard and Plymouth city councillors.
