IT was pleasing to read about the cash boost for the possibilit­y of restoring Rossendale’s rail link, (‘Cash boost for move to restore Valley

rail line’, November 5).

I think Jake Berry is spot on in saying that Mayor Burnham needs to be on board, especially as there are some in the rail industry who consider the link impractica­l.

I was also pleased to see LCC taking an interest in the proposed rail link.

Because I got the distinct impression that, when the X41 bus service was under threat of withdrawal, LCC showed scant interest in seeking to retain it.

I hope this signals a positive approach to the valley’s future transport needs by County Hall. David Mathias Helmshore Road, Haslingden
