Leeds Trolleybus Public Enquiry
Here are the links to the audio recordings of Day 39 of the Trolleybus Enquiry. I think this may have been the longest day in the Enquiry so far, sitting from 9.30 to almost a quarter to six in the evening with only an hour for lunch and two quarter hour tea breaks.
There has been quite a lot of pressure on to get in all the witnesses who have been timetabled and Day 40, Thursday 24th July 2014 is only scheduled to run until lunchtime so I hope it can all be squeezed in.
I will add a longer commentary later.
