Halton Curve - Full Business Case approved!

15th April 2016

On Friday 15th April 2016, we received information that a further major milestone in the campaign to get "Halton Curve" reopened as a practical railway had been achieved.

This was the date that Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA) approved the Full Business Case for the "Halton Curve" major scheme; this has been developed and lead by "Merseytravel" with the involvement of other stakeholders as part of a programme of "Local Growth Fund" schemes.

The Full Business Case has led to the approval of additional funding of £5.67m from the "Local Growth Fund", with the project now moving to "GRIP 4" ( Guide to Rail Investment Projects - 4) - "Single Option Selection" which is targeted to start in July and be completed in December 2016; followed by GRIP 5 - "Detailed Design"  {January/May 2017}; and GRIP 6 - "Implementation" and  Full Completion May 2018.

This is the culmination of 26 years work for the NCRUG and will certainly lead us to a regular service over Halton Curve.
