We campaigned successfully to have the A21 dualled between Tonbridge and Pembury, but there are further improvements needed to our roads and rail services on which we all rely, as well as making the area more cycle friendly.
The bid to get High Brooms station nominated for Access for All funding - to install a ramp to the southbound platform- was submitted by Greg and Cllr Carol Mackonochie, Portfolio Holder for Communities and Wellbeing at Tunbridge Well Borough Council, today.
A joint letter from Greg, Tom Tugendhat and Amber Rudd has been issued calling on the Chief Executive of Highways England, Jim O'Sullivan, to urgently address the issue of safety for both drivers and cyclists following a recent rise in accidents along the A21 between Tonbridge and Pembury, partic
Following a strong campaign, Greg welcomed Southeastern's introduction of Delay Repay 15 today. The new compensation scheme allows rail passengers to claim compensation when their train is delayed by quarter of an hour, as opposed to the previous threshold of half an hour.
Greg has used his regular column in the Times of Tunbridge Wells to urge Southeastern to follow the example of its neighbouring rail operators and start installing charge points at its station car parks.
Greg paid a visit to High Brooms station today in order to talk to Barry Crick, a long time campaigner for step free access at the station, about what can be done to ensure the station is selected during the latest round of Access for All funding.
Greg has written a formal email alongside Amber Rudd and Huw Merriman to the Chairman of Transport for South East (TfSE), urging him to back their bid for the length of the A21 to be dualled between Tunbridge Wells and Hastings.
Greg has welcomed the news that Southeastern passengers will soon benefit from improved compensation for late journeys. The introduction of ‘Delay Repay 15’ will mean compensation is paid after delays of only 15 minutes, instead of the current 30 minutes.
