Clive Efford - A Strong Voice for Eltham and Plumstead

railcuts


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.

So the Government wants to “improve” services by cutting trains. You couldn’t make it up! But Chris Grayling did.

We don’t have a tube line and the government have approved a huge building programme of new flats in Eltham, Kidbrooke, Lewisham. All those people will want to get to London to work. It’s madness to cut the services now.

I drove round the South Circular road last weekend to get to me son and daughter in law’s house in Eltham. The traffic was a nightmare and I thought the only way to get round London is by public transport. Now they are thinking of cutting services ???

During the period of the London Bridge redevelopment I’ve only has a seat going to work 6-7 times in two and a half years! Cutting services is crazy.

Only someone with no experience of railway services could come up with a idea like this. Chris Grayling couldn’t run a bath!

At first I thought this was a hoax. Seriously, how can this even be considered? The links are bad enough already. The trains are packed solid everyday. I have commuted for 30 years and it has never been worse.

Don’t worry pal’s, I’m sure the Tories plan to chauffeur us in a fleet of car’s everyday into the capital. Perhaps they could also cut electricity to our area, that would save money!

Cutting our local services to Charing X and Victoria is outrageous. The services should be increased as there are not enough trains to meet demand but to reduce them is unconscionable. The government does not care about SE London and it is unacceptable. We need to unite against these cuts.

The trains are always full already, so what will happen if they are to be cut?
