Ashford is set to retain its international rail connections after work got under way on a £10.5 upgrade to the signalling equipment and platforms at Ashford International station.
Strood’s new railway station has officially opened today (December 11th) as part of Medway Council’s plans to regenerate the area, a £9million Local Growth Fund allocation, care of South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP)
Work is set to start on a multi-million pound project, £4 million of which is Government funding provided through the South East Local Enterprise Partnership, to transform access to Chelmsford railway station.
There is now more time available for rural businesses to prepare their applications for funding.
The Government’s commitment to boosting productivity by focusing on five key foundations – ideas, people, infrastructure, the business environment and places – has been welcomed by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP).
