A key part of the Eco Sutton response to Birmingham City Council’s Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for the Langley Development was the provision of a green Park and Ride Facility. Eco Sutton’s vision is for fully electric shuttles to run from Langley via a new passenger station on the Sutton Park Railway Line in Walmley and then onto the Town Centre.
There would be two major benefits:
1. Avoiding a dislocated Langley and instead ensuring it was connected by green public transport to the Sutton Town Centre.
2. Avoiding the pollution and congestion of additional traffic on the already congested highways and instead providing clean non-polluting electric vehicles.
