As part of the Liverpool City Region’s desire to achieve “Net Zero” status by 2040, the use of cars must be reduced. Providing a rail link to John Lennon Airport, as a loop line from Ditton via Hale and on to Liverpool South Parkway would attract air passengers from Crewe and further South as well as providing local commuter services. Opening up the disused outer city rail link and connecting it to the proposed airport rail would also be beneficial. Have any such plans been costed?
