The prominent rail re-generation project in the North


An update during these difficult times.

For the foreseeable future or until government advice changes members meetings are cancelled.

We are still going to keep our members up to date with progress on the project.

This will sent electronically as well as the usual updates on the website and Facebook.

We are still working with the relevant agencies although this is being affected by government dealing with the virus measures, still moving but more slowly as expected.

The Selrap Executive are still active and we had our first meeting last night using video conferencing which we will be using going forward.

If you need to contact us all contact details are on the website or email

Thank you and please keep you and your loved ones safe.

The Selrap Executive.
