Campaign to save Interchange Information Centre

Cllr. Allan Knox has launched a petition to save Clitheroe Interchange Information centre from closure.

The closure move came as part of  the round of cuts from Tory-run Lancashire County Council and was unveiled as part of their budget.

Cllr. Allan Knox said: “The Interchange is an essential part of the Ribble Valley public transport network.

“It is vital for the provision of information about buses and trains as well as the sales of tickets. Without that information residents will use buses and trains less and without the sales of tickets the Clitheroe line will be much less viable.

“We have recently seen figures, showing that Ribble Valley is one of the worst areas in the country for social mobility amongst young people. To combat this our young people need good access to education, training and jobs.

“Yet by closing the Interchange we make that access less likely and social mobility for Ribble Valley young people less likely.

“That is why I have launched a petition to save the Interchange Information centre.

“You can sign the petition by clicking the link here.”

    People who travel to Whalley or Wilpshire can manage to get the train for free and sometimes Blackburn. If it’s closed this will happen to a lot people using the train. Some people might oh great but if the starts to see a fall in profit then they might decide to shut the line down again. That’s the last thing we need to happen.
