AN £8m. bid to improve Burnley’s rail links to Manchester with the reinstatement of the Todmorden Curve has been submitted to the Government.

Burnley Council bosses have joined forces with Network Rail, Lancashire County Council and Weavers’ Triangle developers Barnfield Construction to bid for cash from the regional growth fund.

The scheme would replace a 500m stretch of track not used for 40 years and cut journey times to Manchester city centre to 40 minutes.
