Calder Valley electrifcation date awaited

“Currently no timescale exists for the electrification of the Calder Valley route through Halifax,” Transport Minister Claire Perry said in a Commons Written Answer on December 3.

She added: “The scheme is one of a number which are being considered by the joint Task Force of northern MPs and council leaders, which is expected to provide the Transport Secretary with an interim report in February 2015 setting out its recommended priorities for scheme development in future rail funding Control Periods from 2019.”

Perry was replying to Linda Riordan (Labour, Halifax).
