New MK coachway opened

Milton Keynes' MPs Mark Lancaster and Iain Stuart have opened the city's new £2.6m Coachway.

Mr Lancaster, who gave a speech singing the praises of coach travel, said: “I am delighted to see the fantastic new Coachway up and running. Milton Keynes is a major city in the South East and the fastest-growing in the country. Finally we have a transport facility that matches our stature.”

Mr Stewart, who also unveiled the commemorative plaque, said: “It is great to see the Coachway now operational. It will boost the city’s transport links, which is a massive advantage as we pitch for new businesses to set up base here. As the first landmark many people see when they come into the city, it is important for us to create the right impression, and this brilliant new facility does that.”
