The Government is currently consulting on the remaining sections of HS2, including the proposals for the Golborne Spur, which runs through our constituency of Leigh. Thousands of families, including my own, are affected by the route of the Golborne Spur. Not only will it damage our local area by destroying precious green spaces, people's homes, and employment sites, it will also fail to provide us with any of the rewards, such as improved local rail connectivity in our area.
This is why before submitting my own response outlining my opposition to the Golborne Spur, I am encouraging as many local residents as possible to sign my "Say NO to the HS2 Golborne Spur!" petition, so that I can highlight the immense local opposition to these plans directly to the Government as a part consultation response on behalf of local people in the Leigh constituency.
If you can, please do share this petition amongst friends and family, or share this petition on your own social media pages, so we can gather as many signatures as possible and work together to help put a stop to the HS2 Golborne Spur.
