Extra Funding for Rural Stations in South WestPublished: 15/05/08
Passengers on rural and regional rail services across the country are set to benefit from a £60,000 fund for Community Rail Partnerships, Rail Minister Tom Harris has announced.
The new Designated Community Rail Development Fund will help deliver improvements to make a real difference at local stations, such as more seats at stations, cycle parking and better information for passengers. It can also help fund awareness campaigns to encourage more people to use these lines.
Community Rail Partnerships promote and develop the railway services for local people and will apply to Association of Community Rail Partnerships for the funding. The following Community Rail Partnerships in the South West are eligible to apply for funding:
Atlantic Coast Line: Newquay - Par, Cornwall
All partnerships working on these lines can apply to the fund for a grant of up to £5,000 per route.
