Rail services in the next West Midlands franchise are under review (including the Marston Vale Railway Line). There is an open consultation on proposals that runs until 22 March 2016 and all views are welcomed. MVCRP will submit a considered response to this once in a decade opportunity, and in doing so hope to shape rail services on the Marston Vale Line into the future.
The full consultation document and online questionnaire are available at: bit.ly/west-midlands-franchise. Details of all public events (where you can come along and ask questions to inform your response) are contained in the following download. Also, there will be a ‘drop in’ session at Milton Keynes Central Station on Monday 11 January (15.30 – 18.00).
