Broxtowe MP, Anna Soubry braved the cold and wet conditions taking a guided tour of Bennerley Viaduct with Matt Easter, Sustrans England Director and Bill Tomson, Sustrans Network Officer. The proposals to bring the viaduct back into use as a walking and cycling trail were warmly welcomed by the Broxtowe MP . She commented that the project was “excellent” and a “fantastic one”. She congratulated everyone involved in the project and tweeted shortly afterwards “Let’s make it happen”. Anna said she would support the project in any way that she could.
The viaduct straddles the Erewash Valley and connects Nottinghamshire’s Broxtowe constituency with Derbyshire’s Erewash constituency.
