Greater Manchester Metrolink sign now

Dear Sir,

You recently pulled the plug on the long awaited extension to the Metrolink transport system, despite Manchester City Council and other bodies spending millions of pounds on the ground work, people being forced from their homes and businesses being developed with the promise of the extra transport and business.

This seems a very disappointing decision, considering the government has been spending millions trying to get everybody to use public transport, and you then pull the plug on one of the largest expansions.

This has caused a massive wave of anger throughout the whole of the Greater Manchester Area. The Government had promised us 520million to pay for this proposed extension but refuses to give us the money, blaming rising costs. All we ask of the Government is to put forward the money it had promised.

Our local economies depend on this, as many building sites from the new Manchester Stadium to the Ashton Moss Retail Park were sited specifically because the proposed Metrolink extension would be passing their areas. This now leaves many places such as these even less accessible and could seriously damage our local economies.

As such, many people are rallying in protest to this and are actively petitioning, and I would like to present this petition to yourself in an attempt to reconsider the decision.
