East Yorkshire Minsters rail campaign suffers setback [BBC News]





Date: 03/12/2013

Campaigners lobbying to reopen a rail route between York and Beverley have said lack of council support could end the project. East Riding of Yorkshire Council has omitted the scheme from its new 20-year local development plan. The council said it was "broadly supportive" of the proposal but thought the project was "not deliverable". George McManus, from the Minster Rail Campaign (MRC), said the decision was "devastating." The 34-mile (55 km) line was closed in 1965 as part of the Beeching Report cuts. [From Mark Bartlett]
