Does your councillor care about Walkden station ?

August 12, 2007

In early July the FOWS wrote to local MP Barbara Keeley and all 15 Salford councillors with constituencies in Walkden, Little Hulton, Worsley, Ellenbrook and Boothstown to ask for their support. Of those 15 councillors, only 4 replied: hats off to Ian MacDonald, Graham Compton, Stan Witkowski and Iain Lindley.

Because the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Authority (GMPTA) is made up of councillors from the 10 regional councils in Greater Manchester, all local councillors are in a good position to petition for better facilities, better investment, and to protest GMPTA decisions like the one to not fund CCTV and Passenger Information systems at Walkden when other stations along the line are being upgraded.

If you think your councillor isn’t doing enough for Walkden station, why not send them an email to show them how much their constituents care ?

All councillors ward and contact details can be found on the Salford council website.
