Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'
Thursday, April 19, 2007
Well we've certainly started something with the petition! Even before I'd had a chance to refresh the page at the start there were 5 signatures! Now, just 3 days in, we have 77 signatures. Once we have 250 the government have to reply - and with 362 days left we should quickly break through that particular glass ceiling.
Wording is - The Somerset and Dorset Railway was, and will be again after Peak Oil, a vital sustainable transport link across Wessex. The government should release funds and simplify the planning and construction process to allow local people to build, own and operate the line in preparation for when our oil runs out.
