I AM glad to read that the rail minister, Paul Maynard, has responded to Esther McVey’s request to review the Mid Cheshire Rail link by setting up a working group.

Not only will this provide better commuting links for those living in Mid Cheshire, but the rail line will also be the easiest way for those of us in South Trafford to get to London, after HS2 opens in Crewe in 2027.

I very much hope Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester and Graham Brady, the MP for Altrincham and Sale, will also see the importance of the link and support the venture.
