NOTTS will stake its claim for the East Midlands high speed rail station to be built in Toton, councillors have said.
The sidings at Toton were chosen as the preferred site for the station ahead of Derby.
When it is built in 2028, the high speed trains will mean the journey time from Nottingham to the capital is cut to 68 minutes.
And in the face of calls for the station to be built in Derby, Notts County Council is set to work with Nottingham City Council to look at the benefits of bringing the line to Toton.

The study, which will cost £35,000, will look at how the new station would boost investment in the East Midlands and connections between the site and the rest of the county.
The plans were given the green light at the transport and highways committee meeting at Notts County Council on Thursday.
