Viaduct MPs express support for Bennerley Project

Bennerley Viaduct joins communities. The viaduct straddles the River Erewash connecting Awsworth with Ilkeston, Derbyshire with Nottinghamshire, the boroughs of Erewash and Broxtowe and the archdioceses of York and Canterbury. The viaduct also links the Parliamentary constituencies  of Erewash and Broxtowe with the seats being held by Maggie Throup MP. and Anna Soubry MP. respectively.

Over the last fortnight, both MPs have visited the viaduct and enjoyed the wonderful views over the Erewash Valley. Sustrans staff shared with the MPs  the huge benefits that the project will bring to the area.  Both MPs are fully behind the project and are most enthusiastic at the prospect of bringing the viaduct back to life as a walking and cycling trail. Anna Soubry described the initiative as a “fantastic project” and she later tweeted “let’s make it happen”.
