WCML

West Coast Rail 250 (WCR250) campaigns for improved rail services along the West Coast Main Line to support economic growth and employment.

The group is a non-political group of local authorities, private sector companies, consumer transport organisations, and individuals. WCR250 has strong relationships with the train companies on the route, Network Rail and the Department for Transport, enabling its members to have a greater collective influence.

WCR250 has direct links to national politicians through the West Coast All Party Parliamentary Group, and has connections to the devolved administrations in Scotland and Wales.

The group supports High Speed 2, but is working to ensure that the scheme will benefit all communities on the existing and future routes.
