NOW we have a strong Conservative government with Conservative MPs in both Morecambe and Barrow, surely it is about time we were reconsidering the possibility of joining up a direct link between Morecambe and Barrow.

It has been considered on many occasions but the obstacles have always superseded the advantages. Surely, with modern technology and the political will, this project can now no longer be a possibility but a given objective.
