Trams!

Jersey used to have a railway system that linked east and west to town. Such a shame this doesn't exisit thtese days as it could be a genuine alternative for a lot of people who drive to town.  Perhpas we could look at a tram that runs along a (similar) route. It would cost a lot up front but could move a lot of people and reduce reliance on cars and buses

Why the contribution is important

electric tram systems work really well in other places including in the Isle of Man.

    No! We'd lose a lovely walking and cycling route. The bus network is fine for an island this size (remember the Isle of Man is about 20 times the size of our small isle!) we just need to give buses more priority.

    At busy traffic times (say 7.30-9.30 then 4pm-6pm) buses only should have priority along the Inner Road. Access can be maintained for local properties (on a permit basis) but otherwise buses, cycles and electric vehicles only. That would mean the bus would be much quicker than the Avenue, which would probably have much greater volumes of traffic.

    The traffic lights on the Avenue would probably need to be rephased to cope with increased amounts of traffic.
