Southport to Manchester line looked at by Conservative
Candidate Damien Moore and Paul Maynard
THIS morning the rail minister Paul
Maynard visited Southport to discuss the issues surrounding the
Southport to Manchester rail line, with the Conservative candidate Damien Moore.
Also present was the chairman of the Ormskirk, Preston and Southport
Travellers' Association, Alan Fantom and Eric Woodcock, a representative of
the Southport Rail Transport Forum (SRTF).
Damien supports the campaign to retain the vital rail link and hopes to
become its champion by both working closely with Paul Maynard and lobbying
on behalf of the town. He said:- "maintaining the rail link is
essential to the local economy, good connectivity is important for the town
not only to survive, but thrive." Damien, who has already established
a connection with the rail minister, will be a strong voice at the heart of
government that can resolve these issues and make a positive and lasting
impact for Southport.
