David Cameron, MP for Witney, attended the North Cotswold Rail conference which brought together businesses, Local Enterprise Partnerships and local authorities from along the North Cotswold Line to discuss the future of the line and how they would each benefit from improved rail services and infrastructure.
The information gathered and momentum built at the conference will be used to produce a strong business case for the funding for improvements to the North Cotswolds Line. Rail is a major driver behind future development and the involvement of local businesses is essential towards creating a great case for funding.
Mr Cameron is a passionate about improving rail links in West Oxfordshire. He said this about the event:
“It was real step forward to bring together local authorities, LEPs and businesses from along the North Cotswold Line today to kick-start discussions on how they would benefit from improved rail.
“I hope that this event has given the rallying cry to join together with a shared vision and as a single voice for the North Cotswolds Line. Let’s keep up this momentum and build on it – ask your friends, family and everyone in your network to get involved and let’s come up with the strongest business case in the country. The challenge has been set!”
