DBN BUSINESS COMMUNITY SUPPORTS PROPOSED RAIL LINK TO CONSETT

Last week we ran an article by local MP Richard Holden on a proposed feasibility study into a rail link connecting the Derwent Valley with Gateshead.  We asked for your views and we can report that all of your responses have been positive and in support of the proposal, highlighting both the economic and social benefits of a rail link.

David Vickers of Rand Rocket said, “It’s something I’ve had on my mind for about a decade or so and I feel it’s well past time that this was developed, so I’m so pleased that those in power are opening up the discussion. Yes, bring it on!”
