“Electrification of the Midland Mainline is vital for improving transport connectivity for Sheffield and an integral part of building the economic growth we all want to see in the region. It is essential that the Government honour the promises that they made on electrification and today’s announcement is a blow for those of us committed to building a stronger North of England. We call for this decision to be reversed immediately.”
