Local rail commuters have carried out a survey of stations and their facilities. The details are to be discussed at an open meeting on July 9.

The Welham Green Rail Users Group says it has been concerned about continuing problems with the current timetable, delays and cancellations.

They are also calling on WAGN (West Anglia Great Northern) to improve facilities at local stations.

A survey carried out by the group examined waiting areas, ticket facilities, clocks, information posters and security cameras.

The group says Welham Green is one of the most poorly served stations for these facilities.

Organiser Julia Guerra says all the issues are to be taken up with WAGN. “We also hope to discuss the involvement of our local MP, Melanie Johnson, in future discussions with train operators,” she said.

The meeting will be held on Monday July 9, at 7.30pm at 9 Coningsby Close, Welham Green.

For further information call Julia on 01707 276754.
