The Department has not received any bid to the Restoring Your Railway fund regarding the current single line section between Gannow Junction and Colne. Potential improvements to this section of the East Lancashire line were explored as part of the early feasibility work and this is informing development work on the potential reinstatement of the Skipton-Colne rail link.
