Rebuild the Derby-Manchester direct 'Peak' Line
Derby-Manchester: ERTA supports the rebuilding of the missing link from Matlock-Buxton/Chinley for through passenger and freight workings. It would create a much-needed direct rail link between East Midlands and the North West and vice versa and bring much needed footfall and spend to the lower Peak District area minus the excessive traffic and land-use/parking allocation conundrums which bedevils many a local authority. We welcome people to join ERTA and offer to be Area Reps to help us with:
A. Convening meetings
B. Encouraging supporters to join ERTA and offer their time and talents matched to what is needed.
C. Keep an eye on the old trackbed, log blockages now and threats going forward, help organise objections to Councils against development threats and blockages and any further erosive actions against reopening the route as a railway for daily use.
All further enquiries and news, feedback and support can be directed via email@example.com
