RESIDENTS and business who live, work and shop in Dudley town centre are urged to share their experience with travel bosses before multi-million pound regeneration works starts in the town centre.

Transport for West Midlands are calling on residents to complete their travel survey, in a bid to find out how people move around the town.

It is hoped that the findings will help minimise disruption when major projects, such as the Metro extension from Dudley to Brierley Hill and the creation of a new transport interchange, take place.

Alan Lunt, deputy chief executive at Dudley Council, said: “The next few years will see major change in the Dudley Town Centre area and we are excited that these major projects will soon start on site.

“We are also keen to minimise any disruption during the construction period. We are delighted that Transport for the West Midlands are launching this survey. I would encourage local residents, businesses and those who use and visit the town centre area to complete the survey so that travel patterns are better understood and appropriate solutions can be put into place.”

Anne Shaw, director of network resilience, TfWM said: “We’re really keen to find out how people travel in and around Dudley town centre so we’re pleased to be able to support Dudley Council while the work takes place.

“There are many exciting things happening in the region and it’s important we understand people’s journeys to we can help them continue to get from A to B while essential work takes place.”

The survey closes Monday, December 16 and can be found at
