Port Authority of Allegheny County releases NEXTransit plan

The Port Authority of Allegheny County has released their plan to make the Pittsburgh region more accessible, and one idea includes an aerial tram system in the Strip District.The agency’s long-range plan includes 18 projects that they said would improve transit in our area.Rich Wagner of Carrick is a frequent rider of the T.”It’s not too bad from where I park at to here,” he said. “It’s only about a 20 minute ride.”Same for Richard DiBella of Mt. Lebanon. He takes a 20 minute light rail ride into the city, daily.”I think there are a lot of other areas in town that could use the support of either busing or T other than the South Hills where I reside,” he said.That’s exactly what the Port Authority of Allegheny County has been working on over the past two years, and with a lot of public input. It’s called “Next Transit” and is a 25-year plan to improve transit in our area.The most requested infrastructure includes extending the T to the airport and adding a T line from downtown Pittsburgh to Oakland. The plan would also create a downtown transit center, a rapid transit link through the Parkway East and Allegheny Valley South Bank corridor, and bus lanes along McKnight Road in the North Hills.But a high priority on the list of projects, and an attractive one, is an aerial tram system that would connect the Hill District to the Strip District.”I think we should have one there and Mt. Washington, to be honest with you,” said DiBella. “I don’t know why they’ve never had one from Mt. Washington over to the city. It would be fantastic.”The cost for all of these projects is anywhere from $3-4 billion.The Port Authority is holding four public meetings on the plan starting on Wednesday, July 21.To read the details on the 80-page plan: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T5XL4LbdsCqCWK2EJElLYLun9IprS20q/view

Former Port Talbot steelworker who loved taking part in sport killed when his bicycle collided with a car

A retired steelworker and dad described as a “well-known character” died when his bicycle collided with a car.

Philip Bamsey, known as Phil, died following the crash which happened in Afan Way, Port Talbot, at around 2pm on Wednesday, April 15.

The 67-year-old had worked at the steelworks in Port Talbot as a metallurgist from the age of 17 until he was aged 60.

He has left behind his wife Jan and his son Chris, as well as his siblings Diane, Ken, Dennis, Robert and Malcolm. Sadly his younger sister Elaine died two years ago.

His family have described Mr Bamsey as a “well-known character” who would “take the time to speak with anyone”.

In a tribute they said: “Phil had a love for all sports and in particular running, having been a member of the Neath Harriers club for many years.

“He also had a love of swimming, cycling and the Aberavon Rugby Quiz team in which he took part every Thursday evening.

“He was a well-known character as he would take the time to speak with anyone.

“His family and friends, are all devastated by this tragic incident, he will be sorely missed as he lived life to the full.

“We wish to thank witnesses who assisted the emergency services in trying to save his life.”

South Wales Police is appealing for any witnesses of the crash, anyone who may have dashcam footage, or who may have witnessed the manner of driving of the Ford Fiesta or the bicycle prior to the crash, to get in touch with the roads policing unit on 101, quoting occurrence 2000128017.
