£500m to help restore Beeching rail lines

This week, Government formally opened the funding to reopen old disused railway lines with some announcements about new projects. 

Opening up the funding means another manifesto commitment has been delivered, and it's good news for our Robin Hood Line proposals. 

Our local rail provider at East Midlands Trains is putting together the business case for the Department for Transport. That will be submitted by August, and then this pot of funding is what we'll be hoping to use to make the project happen and open up rail travel across North Notts.
