A Fylde MP said he will continue to seek “the best deal” for rail services in the region after the Government launched the tendering process for the northern rail franchise.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced on Friday any company bidding for the franchise must provide new trains to replace ageing Pacer units – trains which currently run between towns in south Fylde. And Fylde MP Mark Menzies said: “I have long campaigned for improvements to the South Fylde Line which would see improved carriages, better time-
tables and more frequent services between Preston and Blackpool South and am delighted to see the Government demanding only the highest quality bids from any future 
operator on the 
network.”
