RMT slams latest kick in the teeth for the North after reports that Grayling is to scrap Leeds to Manchester electrification

RMT slams latest kick in the teeth for the North after reports that Grayling is to scrap Leeds to Manchester electrification.

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"Is is being widely reported today that Chris Grayling is to axe another key rail infrastructure project - the electrification of the trans pennine link between Manchester and Leeds.

"This is yet another kick in the teeth for the North and makes a mockery of the Northern Powerhouse hot air. It also exposes the hypocrisy of the Government's rhetoric on the environment.

"This shambles on our railways has to end and that means Grayling clearing his desk before he ‎does further, lasting damage to the network. "
