I am deeply concerned at the speed in which this Government takes decisions on transport investment. The expansion of Heathrow airport has constantly been kicked into the long grass despite an independent review stating it was the best option.
The failure to expand Heathrow is worrying as the promises to make Crewe a hub for HS2 may never happen if the Government live up to form. The hub at Crewe will directly benefit us as we will have quicker links to Manchester, Birmingham and London. This is good for people wanting to visit North Wales, but is equally as good for businesses who currently operate in our community.
I pressed the Minister to tell us when Heathrow and the hub at Crewe will be given the green light so businesses and people in Delyn can plan accordingly.
