Petition launch for rail scheme

Have your say

CAMPAIGNERS hoping to reinstate passenger trains between Sheffield and Stocksbridge are collecting signatures on an e-petition.

Don Valley Railway – a campaign group which is hoping to run services on the line – is hoping for funding from South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive.

The petition – at – currently has just under 300 signatures.

A spokesman for Don Valley Railway said: “We aim to create a high-quality, environmentally-friendly link that will relieve congestion, act as a catalyst to invigorate the economy and raise the quality of life for the future development of the Upper Don Valley.

“The project will create a template for other community rail projects.”
