Answer for Cross River Tram

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are many positive aspects to the Cross River Tram, which Stephen Norris was merely re-iterating. However, I have a duty to ensure that we spend taxpayers' money wisely. I am not prepared to spend significant sums of development money on schemes that do not have the necessary government funding to be delivered.
