Green lobby back restoration of Leamside Line

Why would a charity that pledges to protect the countryside want a railway line driven through it? Graeme Anderson investigates the reason environmentalists would support the reopening of the region’s most talked about train route
  • Leamside Line would have economic and environmental benefits
  • Cross-party, business and green organisations all support the case for reopening
  • It would create an estimated 8m sustainable transport journeys a year, replacing 1.7m car journeys while reducing annual CO2 emissions by 87,000 tons
