A £1.2 billion City Deal is a partnership consisting of ten local authorities and now Labour want to charge a Valley Tax to enter Cardiff
Plans to introduce a congestion charge to Cardiff are being considered.
Commenting, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Transport Natasha Asghar MS said:
Do the working public of Wales need another bill?
“The last thing the working public of Wales needs right now is another bill. With public transport links outside of Cardiff too unreliable to be seen as viable alternatives, this appears to be just another way to punish motorists.
“With the Labour Government’s backwards ban on road building, the impending rollout of 20mph speed limits, and vital financial support for buses coming to an end you can’t help but feel that motorists are being targeted.
