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.
Along with the HS2 Crewe to Manchester leg being confirmed, a train building contract has been 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.
A lot of people have been in touch asking how they can help-there will be a public vote and we will be running a social media campaign to support it. But this isn't open yet-but if you would like to be contacted when the time comes please do sign up here! If you would also like to receive my general weekly newsletter please tick the additional box.
