Could Cologne’s People Mover Work in Wednesfield!

Culture Wednesfield!

– I was enthralled by this People Mover in Cologne this weekend. Mary and I watched as it linked up parts of Cologne evening out the tourists, making sure the tourist Euro was evenly spread. We discussed how popular it was. We chatted about it maybe working in Wednesfield.

It was popular with all sorts of ages. It got me thinking of how it could link parts of Wednesfield up. How about this for an idea –  The New Cross Hospital site  then The Leisure Park at Bentley Bridge, the Bentley Bridge Retail Park, the new Wyrley and Essington Local Nature Reserve, The Library , the Gurdwara, St Thomas’s Church, Wednesfield High Street, and Market with maybe the chance to link the Woodend Island and then back around the loop again repeating every 15 mins.

Perhaps it could be funded by Transport for West Midlands, The City Council, Bentley Bridge business etc I think it’s worthy of at least a thought
