Lilian Greenwood MP, Shadow Minister for Railways, visited Lafarge Tarmac’s Tunstead aggregates, cement and lime operations this week to discuss rail capacity and ideas to improve the local and national rail network.
The Shadow Minister was joined by Cllr Caitlin Bisknell, the leader of High Peak Borough Council.
Lilian Greenwood MP and Cllr Caitlin Bisknell were given a tour of the Tunstead site, including the railway sidings.
Mat Woodcock, Head of Group Logistics and Supply Chain at Lafarge Tarmac said: “This was a good opportunity to discuss a number of topics regarding the rail network and to show the Shadow Rail Minister how current arrangements are limiting our ability to move more tonnage by rail. Investment is needed in the local and national rail network in order to address these issues and we hope this visit will help to highlight this.”
