Petition for reopening of Etruria station

Written by on 21 February 2021

A Stoke-on-Trent MP has launched a petition to have Etruria railway station reopened.

Jo Gideon says the petition will ask the Government for cash from the Restoring Your Railways fund to conduct a feasibility study of re-opening the station which closed in September 2005.

The Stoke Central MP has received the support from the city council, local businesses such as Bet365 and nearby organisations and charities.

She says re-opening the station will be good for connectivity, boost jobs and improve air quality in a particularly congested part of the city.
