Commenting on the news that the Manchester Piccadilly to Hadfield and Glossop via Hattersley rail route is to lose rolling stock, Stalybridge and Hyde MP Jonathan Reynolds said:
“Yet again rail commuters in the North are losing out, this time seeing rolling stock going to the West Midlands. This loss of trains will hit commuters at numerous stations in Hyde who rely on this route in order to get to work in Manchester City Centre.
This is yet another example in a series of announcements in recent months that have hit rail infrastructure in the North, and which make a mockery of this Government’s ‘Northern Powerhouse’ agenda. I will be writing to the Transport Secretary to find out what plans he has in place to replace the trains we will lose.”
