CONGRATULATIONS! Success to Progress the Beeston & Tarporley Station Project

Home » News » CONGRATULATIONS
Beeston Railway

The Department for Transport (DfT) has announced that Beeston and Tarporley Station Reopening Group has been successful in their bid to the Beeching Reversal 'Ideas Fund' for resources to progress the project to the next stage of development.

Michael Flynn, Chairman of the Beeston and Tarporley Station Reopening Group, commented:

"This is just the start of a long process, but it is a major achievement for all of those who worked so long and hard to prepare an outstanding proposal.

There were over 50 bids submitted to the Department for Transport and, only 15 have been successful in progressing to the next stage, so this is a major vote of confidence in the project.

I would particularly like to thank our local MP Edward Timpson for his unswerving support and sponsorship, without which this success would simply not have been possible."

Keep watching this space.

CONGRATULATIONS!
