Commuters take concerns to WAGN

Welham Green commuters have presented a catalogue of concerns to WAGN and called for a meeting with senior staff.

It follows a public meeting of the Welham Green Rail Users Group called to draw up a checklist of issues raised by local commuters.

Have you any concerns about the local rail services?

The group says facilities for purchasing tickets are still causing great concern with the automatic ticket machine frequently out of service.

Members say peak period announcements are inadequate and the loudspeaker system is poor. They are also concerned about what they describe as platform degradation, trackside litter and the poor state of the shelters.

On the positive side, the introduction of two trains an hour on Sundays was warmly welcomed.

The Welham Green Rail Users Group has now contacted other rail groups in the area, including HART (Hatfield Associations of Rail Travellers) with a view to co-operating in the future on common issues.

The next meeting is scheduled for July 9 at 19:30 at 9 Coningsby Close, Welham Green. Tel: 01707 276754. The group says all commuters are welcome.

If you want to discuss the state of the railways or your journey to work please use the 'Have Your Say' section.
