My Statement to the Media
Tarporley and surrounding towns and villages have been completely ignored in the Conservative government’s latest rail strategy.
Local people, backed by the Liberal Democrats, have been clamouring for the re-opening of Tarporley and Beeston Castle Station but have been snubbed by the Tories. Over 1100 local residents have signed a petition (see HERE) calling for the re-opening of the Station.
Local Liberal Democrat campaigner Ian Priestner said:
“For too long the people of Tarporley have been ignored by the Tories.
“The local economy will be greatly boosted by improvements to the local rail infrastructure. The Conservative MP and Councillor have completely failed to stand up for local interests.
“This is a wasted opportunity to fix our local railway, vital for commuting and business alike. Instead, the Tories have gone off track leaving Tarporley and its residents shunted into a siding “
