Calderdale Council Enviroment and Planning Councillors(Collins & Sutherland) have both said that the cost of re-opening & maintaining the route would be too expensive. Earlier this year. As a result they can't see the council backing the scheme. Meanwhile in the press, Collins is fully supporting it. The proposed re-opening of Box Hill and the Wheatley Viaduct have been dropped. They are however considering the route from Halifax via Ovenden to Queensbury.
