Connecting Mansfield and Kirby-in-Ashfield directly to HS2’s station at Toton

4 June, 2019

We welcome Ashfield District Council’s plan to seek a more detailed set of proposals on the re-opening and upgrading a freight-only line which would allow passenger trains to run between Kirkby-in-Ashfield via Pinxton and Selston to Langley Mill and Ilkeston, and then on to Toton and Nottingham –  something Greengauge 21 advocated for in Beyond HS2.

As well as promoting the economic benefits, the council is keen to promote initiatives that are sustainable and have the potential to improve air quality across the district. See article in the West Bridge Wire
