People Mover Scheme.(78).

People Mover Scheme-Southampton.

The late Clr. Michael Andrews receiving objections.
The Scheme was proposed by the Council during period 1987-1991.
There was much public objection, particularly its proposed impact on the Central Parks. Subsequently amended to recognise the Parks’ care.  Estimated costs approximately £45 million? After the Bill was defeated in Parliament ( thanks to the late Sir James Hill,MP.), the approximate costs of the Scheme were reported as £901,000).
We shall never appreciate the impact of the Scheme on Southampton.   For a detailed history refer to Lubor Velecky’s history ‘Protect it now’ ( 2000)-section 16, pages 81-86.
Thanks to the Southern Daily  Echo for its archives’ information.
