I have been spearheading a bid for Crewe to host the headquarters of Great British Railways working cross party with Cheshire East Council, Pete Waterman, North West LEP, South Cheshire Chamber, Crewe Town Board, South Cheshire College, Crewe Alex and the Railwayman supporters club and a whole range of local railway businesses.
Crewe has successfully reached the shortlist, and is one of the final 6 bids which has gone forward to a public vote which is now open. We need anyone and everyone to support our bid, so please vote for Crewe via the link below and share it widely!

Along with the HS2 Crewe to Manchester leg being confirmed and a train building contract being awarded to local business, Alstom - it would be fantastic to continue uplifting the rail industry in Crewe. I believe we are a strong contender based on our rail history and our ideal placement for connections all across the country.
