£50m transport spend demand for north Bristol

Darren Jones
BBC

A Bristol MP is calling for tens of millions of pounds to be set aside to help improve transport links in the north of the city.

Darren Jones is urging the Metro Mayor for the region to commit £50m to a so called ''Transport Fund''.

He says it would be spent on helping the area cope with a big increase in the number of new homes and the possibility of the Bristol arena moving to the Brabazon hangar at Filton.

We know that a decision will be taken in the next few months. Whilst I support the idea of the arena being in north Bristol, my clear ask, when we think of the arena and all the new houses being built, it's clear we need significant investment in transport now before all of that happens.

Labour now control all four Bristol seats, with huge majorities.

Thangam Debbonnaire in Bristol West surged to a majority of over 37,000 people.

And the newly elected Darren Jones took Bristol North West, without the Conservative vote falling.

So how did he do it? One reason – the so-called progressive alliance. The Green Party stopped campaigning, and urged supporters to back Labour.

Sharmila Bousa, the Green candidate, explained how:

Defeated Tory: 'People have voted for something different'

Voters in Bristol North West have backed Jeremy Corbyn with a big swing.

Two years ago, the Labour candidate polled around 17,000 votes.

Tonight, Darren Jones was elected with 27,000 votes. 10,000 new voters backed him.

But interestingly, the Conservative candidate Charlotte Leslie won exactly the same number of votes, around 22,000, as last time.

She said "things look very turbulent".

"People have voted for something different – and good luck to them,” she added.
