Harlow is expanding. Our population is set to grow by 65% over the next 15-20 years.
To meet this exciting challenge, we need a radical sustainable transport solution that’s green, efficient and we can be proud of.
Harlow Labour are proposing a transformational METRO system comprising ultra-modern E-trams. Running on tyres along single track with passing places controlled by GPS, the trams will run mostly off-road but sometimes as through the Town Centre along existing routes.
A network will link with Gilston to the North – Enterprise Zone – Churchgate St. – New Hospital to the East and other routes to the West and South and even under a joint project with Epping be extended through North Weald to the Central Line.
Danny Purton will be presenting our proposal to the Garden Town Board and over the next few weeks there will be a media campaign to build support for the METRO.
