CADRAG survey on HS2


This survey is intended to help CADRAG* respond to the Rail Needs Assessment for HS2 north of Crewe, being prepared by the National Infrastructure Commission.  This assessment will be used by the Government when it takes a decision on the new lines around Warrington, including the HS2 Golborne Link.
This assessment will cover not just the HS2 Crewe-Manchester line and the Golborne Link, but also the Northern Powerhouse proposals for an east-west line linking Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and onward to York etc.   The east-west line could be simply a new link using “normal” train types or a High Speed line similar to HS2.
So it is important that we present evidence of people’s views on the need or otherwise for High Speed Rail lines in the North West, particularly in the Warrington area.
The questions in the survey are about your experience of the current rail network and your views on how it needs to be improved.
There are eight questions; the survey should only take a few minutes to complete.
This questionnaire closes on Sunday 3rd May.
Thank you for your help.

Winwick Lane 7.5tonne Weight Restriction

Croft Parish Council have objected to a proposal by Wigan Council to impose a weight restriction on parts of Winwick Lane. It is believed that this weight restriction will have a detrimental impact on traffic diverting through the area.

Residents are encouraged to object to this proposal. The objections from Croft Parish Council are in this post, however anyone using them as a guide should not copy verbatim and try to use their own wording and sequence the points as they wish.

Objections should be sent to who is the Wigan MBC Traffic Officer who attended a public meeting at Glazebury. (Please ask Mr Ali to direct the email to Mr Whitworth of Wigan MBC)

**The deadline for submission of objections is Monday 2nd December.**

We will share some guidance on objections for residents as soon as we can.
