Erewash MP Jessica Lee has pledged her support for HS2 following a report outlining benefits of the project was released last week.
A stop in Toton for commuters from Derby and Nottingham with predictions it could boost the local economy by up to £2billion per year.
Jessica Lee said: “This updated report proves why HS2 is needed not only for the country, but also Erewash and the whole Derby-Nottingham region.
“If we do not invest in HS2 current facilities become overcrowded and overburdened.
“Erewash is located between two of the biggest cities in the East Midlands, that’s why I campaigned for Ilkeston station and why I back HS2.”
