Cross Rail – Feasible!

Mr Mac Ruairi

As we already knew, the regeneration department, led by Mr Mac Ruairi, have finally stated that Cross Rail is feasible!

Though it is also expensive, (we knew that), and there is no money (again, we knew that)

We were told that we needed to concentrate on Westfield, – we agree but Westfield would be in a better position with Cross Rail than without.

BRUG is continuing to campaign for the Cross Rail link. The link will provide fresh transport opportunities and real regeneration. Much better than a water pool.

Next meeting 2nd August 2010.
