Minister tells conference: "East West Rail is key part of Government's ambitions"
During a virtual conference last week, Transport Minister Chris Heaton-Harris, who has responsibility for East West Rail, said the scheme is a 'key part of the Government's ambitions' and 'unlocks so much potential in our economy'.
Mr Heaton-Harris was speaking at an event organised by Peloton Events.
Several sessions were held last week, including a presentation by Consortium Chair, Cllr Sue Clark, and a discussion of the scheme's potential for freight.
