Louise Haigh, Paul Blomfield and I have just been told that a decision will be made about our revised bid to restore rail services to the Sheaf Valley in the summer.
Sustainable transportation is so important, especially with our net-zero commitments. Our proposal would provide the people of South & South West Sheffield low-carbon links to the city centre, Manchester, Leeds, and the Peak District National Park. Levelling-up must help our communities to meet the challenge of the climate crisis.
We look forward to receiving a response to our proposal and hope to meet with the Minister to make the case for a transport revolution for Sheffield. In the meantime we will continue to work with local stakeholders and community organisations to add pressure to the bid.
