Transport Union RMT responded to Transport for the North’s Northern Infrastructure Pipeline plans which were announced today.
Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Lynch said;
“Investment to upgrade public transport in the North of England from the government is long overdue and the government should be supporting a national strategy for mass investment in an expanded public transport network that is more frequent, reliable and affordable to use and which can help kick start a green recovery from the coronavirus crisis.
“Central to the plan should be the protection and expansion of public transport jobs and roles to make our network as accessible and safe as possible.”
