Flintshire MP David Hanson has given his renewed support for the Halton Curve rail project and the new work on the development of the infrastructure being led by Merseytravel, on behalf of the Liverpool City Region, along with the Welsh Government and Network Rail.
Mr Hanson welcomed the move to develop the Halton Curve which will bring a real boost and benefit to Flintshire and the wider economic areas of the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire and North Wales after years of campaigning on the issue.
David Hanson MP said:
“The upgrading and development of the Halton Curve is a welcome boost for Flintshire and will make a real difference for businesses and passengers in our area.
“However we still need concerted action and support from the Westminster Government to ensure North Wales can prosper and see its economy grow in the next few years and more investment in our transport infrastructure.”
