Re-Open Our Railway! The South Staffordshire line, Lichfield to Walsall

To the Secretary of State for Transport H.M Government We the undersigned feel that the reinstatment of the South Staffordshire line form Lichfield to Walsall would benifit the local community as well as providing an open corridor for freight transport from the East to the West Midlands, thus freeing up other transort links and reducing the amount of lorrys on our road network.

Discussion

  • Geoffrey Middleton This is an important rail route which should be reopend to passengers and frieght as soon as posible. more real capacity is needed not just longer trains and metros!

  • Anthony Thompson Re-opening this line would be a shot in the arm for the economy of the area and will improve the quality of life for everyone. The cost is a drop in the ocean compared to HS2.

  • Derek Bennett This would be excellent, more needs spending on upgrading our current rail network and many closed lines, including this one, need re-opening. This is more urgent than HS2.
