Luke Pollard MP, has demanded the South West be given its fair share following news government will support funding for yet another tube line in London.
Today, the Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has given his support to Crossrail 2, a £31bn project to create a new tube line in London.
People in the South West receive one seventh per head of what a Londoner does of transport spending.
Travellers on South West trains have recently been subject to disruptions and long delays over the Summer.
Journeys from Plymouth to London are often disrupted and the resilience upgrades that saw storms badly damaged the train line at Dawlish in 2014 are still ongoing.
Since being elected Luke has called for the M5 motorway to be extended to the Tamar Bridge and few more rail investment in the far south west.
"I don't mind London getting yet another tube line as long as transport projects in the far South West are given an equivalent financial boost. I was elected to campaign for Plymouth to get its fair share and when other parts of the country are getting big funding increases it is right to demand that the far south west gets more money too.
When our train line is creaking and the M5 stops in Exeter the case for investing in the transport in the far South West is overwhelming. Transport investment creates jobs and helps our economy grow.
If government can find money for Northern Ireland to buy the votes of the DUP and more money for London to get another tube line, why isn't there money for the long overdue rail and road upgrades the far South West needs?"
