BACKGROUND TO PRESENT DAY TRANSPORTATION IN THE LEEDS SUB REGION

Leeds was not a city of major importance until the industrial revolution when with the growth in industry and commerce the population also grew. The major growth of the city took place before the second world war. Passenger transport developed. After the second world war motor car, motor bus and train were the transport modes. The rate of growth of traffic increased. Construction of the road network was part of an overall programme of comprehensive re-development. The city now needs a large scale renewal. The "Leeds approach" should be partially reassessed. There is now a much more restrictive approach towards capital investment in transportation infrastructure. /TRRL/
