Lib Dem minister talks jobs in Manchester visit

On Friday, Transport minister Norman Baker was at Manchester Piccadilly following the announcement of £322 million extra funding towards the Northern Hub rail project for Manchester which could create 30,000 jobs and a £4.2bn boost for the regional economy. Also announced was £1 million given to Manchester Victoria under the Coalition government’s ‘Access for All’ scheme which aims to improve access to public transport. The money will go towards a new lift to the footbridge, ensuring level access across the station, new handrails and landings on the existing footbridge.

In previous blogs I’ve written about other investments in the area announced by Norman Baker, it’s clear that Liberal Democrats are in government fighting for Manchester and fighting for jobs.

Norman also joined the Liberal Democrat candidate for Manchester Central, Marc Ramsbottom, to discuss what the new Northern Hub investment means for Manchester.
