The support of business is crucial in helping the success of our campaign to bring full high speed rail connectivity to Liverpool City Region – both East-West between Liverpool, Manchester and across the North of England and connecting directly to the planned North-South ‘HS2’ Network.
In the first phase of the campaign over 1,000 businesses pledged their support for the campaign.
Linking Liverpool now enjoys the backing of the main business network organisations, including the Local Enterprise Partnership, five Chambers of Commerce, Downtown in Business, Federation of Small Businesses, Institute of Directors, Liverpool BID Company, Professional Liverpool, Social Enterprise Network and The Women’s Organisation. Together, the organisations represent over 10,000 businesses and 125,000 employees in the region.
Robert Hough, Chair of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “The Linking Liverpool campaign has gathered real momentum over the last 18 months and demonstrates that, when it comes to securing investment in high speed rail infrastructure, the Liverpool City Region means business.
“We are calling on the Government and Transport for the North, to recognise the clear economic case for full high speed rail connectivity for Liverpool and to deliver the schemes as part of the first phase of the Transport for the North programme.”
