Project officer (Guildford Horsham line) for ERTA (English Regional Transport Association)
The English Regional Transport Association (ERTA) is an organisation dedicated to improving public transport.
A volunteer is required to coordinate or head up the campaign/project to re-open the old Guildford-Cranleigh-Horsham railway which closed over 50 years ago. One of the places the line served was Cranleigh, which is now without a railway and whose population is growing. Much of the old track-bed survives, and the re-opened railway could be a conventional railway or light rail.
The project would involve:-
- Building a team,
- Doing the homework,
- Growing a network of support from the grassroots upwards and amongst professionals and elected representatives to orchestrate moving the project forward to delivery.
