Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, is continuing to encourage the people of West Yorkshire to #TellTracy about issues they have experienced with the rail network across the North.

Throughout February, people are being asked to tell their stories of how they have been affected by the lack of investment in rail infrastructure in West Yorkshire.

The stories will be presented to the Transport Select Committee where the Mayor will be giving evidence on the Integrated Rail Plan on Thursday 24 February in Leeds.

Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, said:

“We’re hearing of people being late to work, unable to put their kids to bed, missing out on learning opportunities and all of this is directly related to our rail network.

“I want the government to hear these stories and to understand how much of an impact their decisions, like the Integrated Rail Plan, have on the people in this region.

“If your life is being impacted by the rail network in West Yorkshire, then I want you to write to me, so I can demand better for our region.”

Members of the public are invited to tell their story by emailing telltracy@westyorks-ca.gov.uk or by filling in the form on our website.
