MP Jake Berry praises rail investment
3:31pm Thursday 19th July 2012 in Blackburn
A MULTI million pound investment in the rail network in and around Manchester has been welcomed by Darwen and Rossendale MP Jake Berry.
Justine Greening, Secretary of State for Transport, announced the news as part of a £9.4 billion Government investment nationally.
Mr Berry said: “The Prime Minister has called this the biggest modernisation of our railways since the Victorian era, and he’s right. Just as we are dealing with the budget deficit, so we are also determined to deal with the massive infrastructure deficit.
“These plans will increase capacity, help passengers to get between our cities faster and importantly also help freight make better use of the network.”
