Members of the public are being invited to give their views on multi-million plans to upgrade the Sheffield to Manchester railway.

Work involves adding extra tracks at Grindleford and expanding Dore and Totley station.

Public consultation sessions take place at The Maynard hotel, Main Road, Grindleford, from 10am to 2pm and 4pm to 8pm today, and 10am to 2pm tomorrow and Saturday.

In Sheffield, the events take place at Abbeydale Sports Club, off Abbeydale Road South, on Thursday, November 14, between 10am and 2pm and 4pm to 8pm, and between 10am and 2pm on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16.

Members of the public will be able to view plans of the work and ask questions about the project.

The upgrade will allow the Hope Valley Railway to carry three express trains each hour between Sheffield and Manchester, as well as more trains serving local stations, which currently run just once every two hours on weekdays.
