Plea to prioritise Manchester's improved rail links over London's Crossrail 2



Manchester politicians have urged Chancellor Philip Hammond to put the Northern Powerhouse transport network ‘to the front of the queue’ for investment, ahead of London’s Crossrail 2 scheme.

In a letter to Mr Hammond, Greater Manchester mayoral candidate Andy Burnham , city council leader Sir Richard Leese and interim Greater Manchester mayor Tony Lloyd, all asked him to heed the ‘wake-up call’ of the Brexit vote and pump funds into new rail infrastructure in the north of England.

...

In the 2016 Budget, then-chancellor George Osborne said the government was allocating £60m for plans to cut journey times to around 30 minutes between Manchester and Leeds . He also pledged to improve transport connections between other cities in the north.

Mr Burnham said: “This is the start of a big change in British politics. From now on, at key political moments, people will hear the collective voice of the North of England more loudly than ever before challenging a Westminster system that has failed us for too long.

“Decades of unfair allocations from the transport budget have left the North with an inadequate rail system and motorways that are at saturation point.

“If people in London and the South East had to put up with the North’s transport system, there would be protests in the streets. It is our turn to come to the front of the queue for transport investment and that must start this week.”

One of the most exciting proposals in Manchester.
