Graham Evans MP is delighted to announce that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has today confirmed that £10.4 million in funding has been allocated to restore the Halton Curve.
Graham Evans MP said: “ I am very pleased that the Halton Curve is to be redeveloped to provide the people of Frodsham, Helsby and Runcorn with a direct rail connection.
I have been campaigning strongly for this vital rail link for a number of years and my petition has attracted hundreds of constituents’ support.
I have been working closely with the Chancellor of The Exchequer, the Department for Transport, Merseytravel, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Halton Council and North Cheshire Rail Users Group and North Cheshire Rail Users on this very important transport link.
The Halton Curve will connect Halton, Cheshire, and North Wales together to provide a huge boost to the local economy and will make Weaver Vale an even better place to live, work and invest.”
