Commenting on the Government announcement to invest in the rail structure, Neil Hoose, the Federation of Small Businesses' Chairman for Infrastructure, said:
Well thought out transport infrastructure spending can promote growth and have a lasting positive economic legacy. This is long overdue investment in critical infrastructure that will help small businesses better connect with their customers and suppliers. We have long been calling for better road and rail links to be put in place so this will be welcomed by the business community.
