MP secures further funds for Robin Hood Line

ROBIN HOOD LINE ANNOUNCEMENT BY MARK SPENCER MP:

''During this week's Prime Minister's Questions I once again pressed the PM to back my bid to extend the Robin Hood Line to Edwinstowe and Ollerton. Having previously secured his support, along with the Secretary of State for Transport and the Rail Minister, to get funding for new stations on the line, I'm delighted that the PM today confirmed that the funding will be extended to allow us to access money to kickstart the rest of the project and fund the work and planning that needs to be done to get it moving.

After a lot of stalling locally, I'll be in touch with the County Council to make sure they are doing the necessary work and making the bids they need to get it going.''
