More than 8,000 households in Leighton Buzzard will be bombarded with advice about the method of transport they should use as part of a £5m travel initiative.

Central Bedfordshire Council want to reduce congestion on Leighton streets by encouraging people to think twice about using their car to get around.

A Personal Travel planning project launched in the town yesterday, which means people will be receiving a knock on the door by a team of travel advisors over the next few months.

It is their job to offer the public information on the travel options in their area and encourage people to use another form of transport other than their cars.

The alternative transport project called ‘Travel Choices’ will cost £4.9 million across three years and is being funded by the Government’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
