Midlands Connect Meeting

Anna and Nottingham East MP, Chris Leslie met Midlands Connect this morning – it’s the group responsible for putting together a transport strategy for the East and West Midlands. Midlands Connect have ambitious plans to ensure the HS2 hub in Toton is directly connected to East Midlands airport and neighbouring cities (notably Nottingham and Derby) using the existing rail network. It would mean the  journey from Nottingham to Birmingham would be dramatically reduced to just 33 minutes. There was also the discussion of the unacceptably slow roll out of electric car charging points across the East Midlands.
