Conservatives Pledge Millions For Greater Manchester Tram Network

The Transport Secretary Grant Shapps was in Greater Manchester earlier.

He said that if the Conservatives win the December 12 General Election they will provide the millions of pounds needed to extend the tram network to the Bolton and Stockport.

The cash will come from a new, devolved £4.2billion long-term Local Public Transport Fund to be allocated to the eight city regions including Greater Manchester.
