FOWS meet GMPTE Chairman Roger Jones

September 7, 2007

This week FOWS members enjoyed a positive meeting with GMPTE chief Roger Jones to discuss future investment plans for Walkden station. As ever, there aren’t enough funds for all public transport needs, but Cllr Jones gave a good account of GMPTE’s work and shared some helpful insights into ways that FOWS might progress.

Under current proposals, Walkden’s much needed safety and security improvements aren’t scheduled for the next few years. While this was obviously disappointing news, the plans are currently only in draft status and FOWS will lobby for Walkden’s priority to be raised because we believe it is busier and in greater need than some stations currently ahead of it in the funding queue.
