Brighton MP’s bid to get a better rail service
10:04am Monday 11th March 2013 in News
A transport minister has been lobbied on providing a better service for Brighton’s rail commuters.
Brighton Kemptown MP Simon Kirby met rail minister Simon Burns to quiz him over the forthcoming renewal of franchise contracts affecting the city’s mainline to London.
Mr Kirby, who recently launched his “better trains for Brighton” campaign, said: “I have been receiving a steady stream of complaints about rail services and the poor way matters are currently dealt with when problems occur.
“Often information is confusing or contradictory, the slightest incident seems to cause widespread and sustained chaos while fares have increased above inflation for years and passengers have had enough.”
