Doncaster’s Bid for Great British Railways HQ

Andrew is encouraging residents to vote for the location of the National Headquarters of Great British Railways.

Andrew said on Facebook, "I am pleased to be supporting Doncaster’s bid to be the location for the national headquarters of Great British Railways (GBR). 

"Being chosen as the national headquarters of GBR will send a signal that Doncaster and the wider area is one of the country’s major rail centres, and should help attract further investment and employment across our area. 

"The competition is now in its final stages, with five other bids shortlisted. I am informed that the final stage of the competition will rely on expressions of support from the public and stakeholders. As such, residents can outline their support for the bid by voting for it online via the following link:"
