Reopen Walsall-Brownhills-Lichfield Railway Line.
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
In recent years, work has begun between Wednesbury and Brieley Hill to reopen the line for metro and freight usage in 2023.
There are no plans for the Lichfield-Walsall section to reopen. When asked about reopening. West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street claimed there was low demand to reopen the railway and it wouldn't be till 2040s it could be reopened.
This is a wasted opportunity to reconnect Walsall to the main line for services to Stoke on Trent, Stafford, Crewe, Tamworth and Burton upon Trent. I am calling for signatures on this petition to change the minds of the transport bodies and try to get them reassessing the line as being possibly reopened.
To go to Lichfield it takes almost an hour to get there where as with this line. It would take on average half an hour.
Areas this section served the areas of Walsall, Rushall, Pelsall, Brownhills, Hammerwich and Lichfield.
Please sign and share this as it is to try and get the line reevaluated to possibly reopen the line.
