Prime Minister David Cameron speaks to The Bolton News
THE Prime Minister David Cameron has visited The Bolton News to discuss the government’s plans to electrify the rail network in Bolton and beyond.
It follows today’s news that the railway line between Bolton and Wigan will receive £37 million of investment to electrify the line.
Mr Cameron also discussed town centre investment, business rates and the so-called ‘bedroom tax’.
The Department for Transport (DfT) has announced today that the line from Bolton to Wigan North Western — which goes through Westhoughton, Hindley and Ince — will be upgraded as part of a national push for rail electrification.
A DfT spokesman said the government was investing record amounts to modernise the network across England and help areas like Bolton.
