DEREK TWIGG MP SUPPORTS THE UNLOCK RUNCORN CAMPAIGN

30 Apr 2014

Derek Twigg is supporting the Unlock Runcorn campaign following a visit to meet campaigners at the site of Runcorn Locks on the Bridgewater Canal. The aim is to restore the canal to follow its original route through to the Manchester Ship Canal.

Derek said;

“If successful, this would mean that tourists would suddenly start to pass through Runcorn Town Centre with all the spin offs that can have for the community. The new route would be vastly attractive as it would create a second Cheshire ring, linking us to the Manchester Ship Canal, the Weaver Navigation, Anderton Boat Lift and Norton Priory.”
