Business survey on Shrewsbury to Black Country rail line

Midlands Connect GIFDo you or your business use trains for work? If so, Midlands Connect wants to hear from you. 

Improvements to the Shrewsbury to Black Country to Birmingham rail line could make it easier for your staff to commute and help your company grow.

Midlands Connect is making the case to the Government that investment in the Shrewsbury to the Black Country to Birmingham rail line will help boost regional growth, improve local connectivity, and help it deliver on the Levelling Up agenda.

Its proposals would see the line speed increase from 50mph to 90mph in the short term with future plans to electrify the line and increase the frequency of services to London.

Midlands Connect needs your support to make the case for funding. You can help by giving your opinion on how an improved rail service between Shrewsbury, the Black Country and Birmingham would impact your Sandwell business and colleagues.

To help, all you have to do is complete a short survey. The survey will be kept open until early September, when the results will be handed over to ministers for a potential parliamentary roundtable and released to the public.
