A Derby MP has today welcomed news that the city's Bombardier factory has been awarded a £1 billion contract with London's Crossrail project.
Chris Williamson, who represents Derby North, said the deal was "great news" for both the company and for Derby's wider economy.
The fantastic campaign by Derby people and trade unions to secure train manufacturing in Derby, after losing out on the £1.4bn Thameslink contract in 2011, has been vindicated.
Today’s announcement is just the fillip Bombardier needed to secure its medium-term future and it’s great news for Derby’s wider economy too.
