Austin welcomes metro announcement

Dudley North MP Ian Austin has welcomed the announcement of government funds to extend the Metro system from Wednesbury through Dudley and on to Brierley Hill.



Austin, who has been campaigning for the Metro extension for the last twelve years, said:

"I've been campaigning for the Metro to be brought through to Dudley and Brierley Hill for years so I'm delighted our work has finally paid off.

"This is great news - not just for Dudley town centre and for my constituents who will be able to get jobs and travel to work much more easily in Birmingham, at Merry Hill or across the region, but for the Black Country and the West Midlands as a whole."
