Willaston and Rope Ward UKIP Councillor Brian Silvester is shocked by yet another U-turn by Cheshire East Council Leader Cllr. Jones on local radio today.
Brian said," I was amazed to hear him say that Crewe rail station was to become a museum. This comes only weeks after he assured Councillors that the station would remain open. Currently the new entrance to Crewe Railway Station is being transformed following £6.5m cash injection that will pave the way for Crewe to become a gateway to the North.Cheshire East Council bought the former Royal Mail depot in 2011 for £2.75 million to help deliver this new station project.
If Crewe Station is to become a museum why is all this public money being spent on it now?
Cllr Jones moves from one self inflicted calamity to another at a baffling pace. He is making CEC look increasingly ridiculous. The current multi million investment in Crewe Station is marvelous for the town and the Borough. He should not undermine the good work of his own Council by making wild statements about Crewe Station becoming a museum."
