Crewel delusions (part two)

with one comment

Part one

Crewe councillors were “shocked” to learn that Cheshire East council is to support a plan to close the town’s railway station and build a Park and Ride replacement where the A500 crosses the railway north of Weston (reported Cheshire Today, 7 January 2014).

They say this latest announcement, made by council leader Michael Jones at the full Cheshire East Council meeting on December 12th, was made without any discussion beforehand and no consultation with the people of Crewe. Crewe residents will be aware that a group including Network Rail tried to force such a move in 2008 but following protests by many locals, the proposal was blocked by the Office of Rail Regulation.

How much would it cost to build a Crewe parkway station on a new site?
