Ashington Blyth & Tyne Line Progress

Today I had a Zoom meeting with Stuart McNaughton of Northumberland County Council who updated me on progress on the Ashington re-opening. Contracts for Outline Design work have now been let (indeed, I met some yellow-jacketed surveyors doing water course investigations when out for my “exercise” walk at Lysdown Farm near Newsham last week). The County Council continue to pursue funding opportunities with the Department for Transport. For more information see our Campaign Event Chronology page.
