Letter: City should go it alone for cash.
Dear Editor, -Congratulations to you and your staff in persisting with the 'get moving' campaign.
Thousands of hours of council meetings, debates, committees, subcommittees, and meetings with consultants by councillors and officers have cost the West Midlands council taxpayers a fortune since 1995 when the last major transportation project (Snow Hill to Wolverhampton Metroline) was authorised and backed by Government funds.
I suggest it is now time for Birmingham to stand on its own two feet and deal direct with Government to obtain a firm commitment from the national transport budget for very urgent new projects.
Regional 'talking shops' will stultify Birmingham's aspirations.
DON LEWIS Solihull.
