There is significant support from a new survey for State Senator Eric Lesser's proposed high-speed rail service between Springfield and Boston.
Western New England University has released a poll that indicates almost 90 percent of people surveyed in Western Massachusetts support the project, while the support level was at about 75 percent for Bostonians.
Nearly five-hundred people participated in the poll, conducted in the last month.
Lesser says he hopes the survey is a wake up call to those who have questioned the project and have held it back.
