£2m fund for new railway stations

THE government has unveiled a £20m aimed at providing better journeys for rail passengers across England and Wales.

The next round of the new stations fund will provide up to 75% of the cost for construction of new stations or to reopen previously closed stations.

It was unveiled by the Department for Transport on 26 August.

Funding is intended to improve access to the rail network and create new travel, employment and housing opportunities.

The deadline for bidders for this second round of funding is 18 November 2016.
