Bus cuts – good news from Eastleigh

Some good news from Chandler’s Ford. After a strong campaign run with local Lib Dems, Haulwen Broadhurst and Grahame Smith, Lib Dem-run Eastleigh Borough Council has stepped in and saved the C service in Chandler’s Ford after its funding was cut by Hampshire County Council.

The Winchester Lib Dem team has been campaigning hard with local people to reverse the Conservatives’ cuts to local bus services in the rest of the new Winchester constituency. Hundreds of people across Winchester have already signed our petitions to reverse the cuts in the 1, 5, 6 and 6a services.

These cuts affect the elderly and immobile hardest – particularly the cut in the 6a to Abbotts Barton.

At a time when we need to be tackling climate change, we also need to be making it easier to use bus services, not harder.

We’ve seen that the Liberal Democrats running Eastleigh Borough Council have true commitment to public transport. Will the Conservatives running Winchester City Council be prepared to step in and save our local services here in the same way?

Do Winchester’s Conservatives actually have any commitment to the environment or have they just been making empty promises about the environment to try and win votes.
