North West & Wales cross border alliance
North West & Wales cross border alliance
Quote:Growth Track 360 has been launched to secure £1bn of rail improvements, which would transform the North Wales and Cheshire regional economy and deliver 70,000 new jobs over 20 years.
It’s being led by a cross-border alliance of business, political and public sector leaders.
If successful, it would lead to a massive boost to the North Wales, Cheshire and Wirral economies, linking them with the planned HS2 line between London and the North of England.

I'm not sure how much they'll be able to do but they are going to push for:
- Improved access to Manchester Airport from Wales and the Midlands including western Airport link
- New direct links between North Wales and the East Midlands
- 3tph on North Wales coast
- Reinstatement of passenger services on Middlewich branch
- Extension of additional Manchester-Greenbank services to Chester
- Improve rolling stock
- Introduce direct services between Winsford and Warrington
- Improve services to Wrexham including direct Liverpool via Runcorn service.
- Additional loop at Poynton on WCML so that provision of local services can be improved.
- Connect Helsby to Merseyrail network.
- New Mid-Cheshire and WCML interchange station.
- Park and Ride station(s) on Chester to Crewe line.
- Electrification of lines including North Wales Coast, Chester to Crewe and Manchester to Liverpool via Warrington.
