Clive Efford - A Strong Voice for Eltham and Plumstead


sadiq_and_clive.jpgChris Grayling, the Conservative minister for transport, has called for the train services from Eltham to Charing Cross and Victoria to be cut.  Under his Department's proposals trains on the Bexleyheath line will only run to Cannon Street.

They claim that  running to trains to several destinations "introduces operational complexity, requiring trains to cross complex and busy junctions. This is a major contributor to delays, and makes it much harder to recover the service when things go wrong.”  The Government's answer to this problem is simple: cut the services, ignoring the terrible impact this will have on local commuters and the whole community.  This unacceptable.

Please sign below to oppose these terrible cuts.

I have to go to kings hospital on a regular appointment. So taking away this service will cause myself and any other person who has appointment at king college hospital nie on impossible to get there as it cost over £20 by cab to get there and then £20 back. We are surposed to use local transport. So why take a good service away.

Chris Grayling wants to remove the Victoria entire service as it is prone to congestion. He also plans to solve the problem of his mother’s low ceilings by cutting off her head.

This would be undemocratic and bonkers if carried thru.

Losing that link will create more traffic on the other lines and stations ready very busy. Madness to lose any link in this densely populated area the South East which is still increasing in population. More houses are being built meaning more demand on little capacity on the other lines.

People move to this area because of the great refill networks. Cutting twins won’t make their service better. It’s a joke.

The Victoria line via Bexleyheath serves an increasing population with the development at Kidbrooke and is well used at all times of the day. The argument that changing the Victoria route will reduce delays to services is trivial, but will inconvenience many who currently rely on this route.

My wife is living with brain cancer. We make regular trips to King’s College Hospital travelling from Welling to Denmark Hill. Cutting out the train we use will add to our difficulties.

Rail prices are going up and the service is getting worse. It’s a joke. Constantly late or cancelled at a moments notice.

The train services are vital to being well connected to the city. Without tube or DLR links, we really need all these services. They are also already extremely busy, so cannot understand how cuts can be considered.
