Telford deserves a better train service
Local MPs Mark Pritchard & Lucy Allan both spoke in favour of improving rail facilities and services for the people of Telford at Parliament today.
Two trains to Birmingham, 15 mins apart, two carriage sardine tins, and our crumbling stations all came under fire.
“Telford is an exciting place to live. Without doubt, it is one of the most successful towns in the midlands, economically and in terms of quality of life. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary in Telford and look to our future, we must ensure that our rail services match our economic growth and our huge ambitions for the future”
Major investment by the new franchise operator has already been announced and an extra train service to Birmingham on the half hour promised.
Do take part in the big squeeze between Telford & Birmingham?
