Greg campaigns against shortening of Cannon Street train

Greg and the MP for Hastings, Amber Rudd, teamed up to campaign against the decision by Southeastern to shorten by a third a popular commuter train – the 18:28 Cannon Street to Ore service.Greg and Amber visited Cannon Street so that they could see for themselves what the impact of this decision has had on rail travellers.

Greg said:

"I was very concerned to hear that Southeastern was cutting by a third the capacity of the 18:28 train from Cannon Street which is an extremely popular service for many Tunbridge Wells commuters. The first stop after London is High Brooms so if the train is crowded, passengers are having to stand for 45 minutes. Given the price of season tickets, I think commuters should expect to travel in comfort and I will be asking David Statham to urgently review his decision when I meet him at the end of this week."
