Joint statement from South Yorkshire MPs Ed Miliband, Sir Kevin Barron, Caroline Flint, John Healey, Angela Smith and Dame Rosie Winterton.
"It is clear that by every test the new M18 spur route is not in the best interests of the South Yorkshire region. 
The new route will result in slower journey times, fewer, smaller trains and will not provide the economic benefits to the wider region in comparison to the previous Meadowhall option."
