A major new initiative, Grow track 360 has been launched, with the aim of securing £1bn of investment for improvements to the rail system from Cheshire to North Wales.

Grow track 360 is being led by a network of political, business and public sectors leaders, including eight local authorities, including Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC).

Should the campaign be successful it will connect the rail network with the planned HS2 line between London and the Northern Powerhouse, in the north west.

Research suggests the improvements would lead to an estimated 70,000 new jobs and the fast-tracking of economic growth so that the region’s annual output would grow to £50.5bn in 20 years.
