FIONA Bruce MP is calling on residents to join her longstanding campaign to reopen Middlewich train station.

She is asking as many of her constituents from Middlewich as possible to contribute to the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership’s (LEP) consultation on its draft Transport Strategy.

Fiona said: “Having a great transport system is vital in supporting residents and businesses to succeed.

“The reopening of the Middlewich Railway Station to passengers would benefit the people in the local area immensely.

“I encourage everyone to contribute to the consultation pressing for this, improve the quality of life for the people of Middlewich and along with the recently approved the bypass, help the town achieve its full economic potential.

“You can take part in the consultation by writing to or by writing to Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership, 1st Floor, Wyvern House, The Drumber, Winsford, CW7 1AH.

“Let’s get Middlewich on the local rail map – the more people who press for this the louder our local voice.”
