Railway Stations: Chorley

Volume 470: debated on Friday 25 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when work will begin on the construction of the new railway station at Buckshaw Village, Chorley. (181704)

This is a project that is being led by Lancashire county council with Network Rail. It is being funded largely by developer contributions. There is an active dialogue between the local authority and Network Rail, who will be responsible for project managing and delivering the station, provided the funding is fully in place. They are planning for the station to be operational by 2009 subject to funding.
