In January 2020, the Government pledged £500 million for the Restoring Your Railway programme to deliver on our manifesto commitment to start reopening lines and stations to reconnect smaller communities, regenerate local economies and improve access to jobs, homes and education. The bid for the Beverley to York line to the third round of the Ideas Fund, to improve connectivity and speed of travel between Hull, York and intermediate towns, was successful. Government will be awarding up to £50,000 of funding to the promoters to develop a Strategic Outline Business Case.
