The Department for Transport invited MPs, local authorities and community groups across England and Wales to propose how they could use funding to reinstate axed local services and restore closed stations.
Funding was made available for 3 purposes.
Through the Ideas Fund, we are supporting proposals to reinstate axed local services, which are sponsored by MPs working with local authorities and community groups.
The £500 million fund is also helping to accelerate the development of closed lines and stations which are already in the process of being considered for restoration.
Proposals for new and restored stations
The New Stations Fund supports both the development of new stations and restoration of old station sites.
