I JUST wanted to say thank you to the residents of St Mary's Ward, in Sale, for responding to my recent bus survey which asked people their views about the bus services in this area.

I've had a fantastic rate of response to the surveys with many people very unhappy and disillusioned by the current service.

The recent withdrawal of the 19A service and cuts to the 16 service in the area have only added to the already poor public transport provision in the ward and I will be speaking to Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) over the coming weeks about the survey and resident concerns.

If you haven't responded to the survey yet or would like a copy of the survey, please contact me on jameswright@traffordlabour.org.uk.
