Proposed Rail Link to London



Both I and Martin Vickers, MP for Cleethorpes, met with Alliance Rail recently to discuss a new route they are proposing that would link Cleethorpes, Scunthorpe and Thorne South with London.


I raised the possibility of the new service stopping at Barnetby which Alliance said they would seriously look at. They told us they expected that the new service could be ready by as early as 2014 but that it is subject to approval by the rail regulator.


Following on from the meeting I brought this to the Government’s attention by raising the proposed service to London in the House of Commons.
