New rail service is no use to us

Share this article

Given the current problems that rail commuters are facing going up to London, it seem small comfort to be reading about a new service linking Hastings and Battle With Charing Cross and by-passing other stations on the Hastings line.

The pressures on commuting on the Hastings to London line demand a much more Comprehensive solution.

Speaking on behalf of those who use Robertsbridge station and indeed other stations the line, we cannot but feel let down that the opportunity for a radical review of services has been spurned for a seeming electoral quick fix to boost the reelection credentials of the Hastings Conservative MP.

Other users of the line deserve better than this.
