Hi all

I think the metro link element was referenced on here last week but tomorrow night the Council scrutiny committee which I sit on will be considering the Stockport Rail Plan proposals, put forward by TfGM and the Council.

It is important to note that this is very early stages and there is no solid timeline for delivery.

The proposals affecting Hazel Grove are:

1. Half hourly off peak train services between Hazel Grove and Buxton and Hazel Grove to Manchester.
2. Increased peak capacity beyond 4 carriages between HG and Manchester. Hopefully most you will remember William. and I campaigning for this not long ago.
3. New stations proposed for High Lane and Simpsons Corner.
4. Extension of the East Didsbury Line of the metro link to Hazel Grove. The has been identified as low priority by the Council and TfGM whereas the extension to Marple is being prioritised.

As I see it, these proposals do have merit but I will be making a strong case for the metro link to be re-prioritised, especially in light of A6MARR.

I would welcome any comments or questions!
