Mid Cornwall Metro set to improve links in the area
Cornwall Council in the UK has given the go ahead for the Mid Cornwall Metro initiative which hopes to transofrm transport links across the region. Work is expected to start in 2024. 
Born of a partnership with Network Rail and the Great Western Railway, its aim is to encourage sustainable travel across Cornwall. 
Cllr Richard Williams-Pears, the Councils' transport portfolio holder said, 'This initiative is key to delivering rail and active travel improvements across Cornwall both now and in the future, to enhance the lives of our residents by revolutionising how we navigate across the Duchy. 
Cabinet members voted to accept the offer of £50m in Levelling Up Funding towards the delivery of the £56.8m Mid Cornwall Metro scheme. 
The Cornish council emphasised how they are the “accountable body” for the project and aim to keep a “tight hold on the purse strings”. 
The Mid Cornwall Metro Initiative has been given the 'green light' from the Cornish Council (Network Rail)
