MPs reach out to rail bosses for an­swers

The Scarborough News - - FILEY & HUNMANBY -

Fi­ley MP Kevin Hollinrake is among a group of MPs invit­ing rail bosses to a meet­ing to out­line the im­prove­ments that pas­sen­gers can ex­pect in 2019.

Fol­low­ing a year of dis­rupted travel and de­lays, the All Party Par­lia­men­tary Group for York­shire and North­ern Lin­colnshire has in­vited the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tors of North­ern Rail and Transpen­nine Ex­press along with the re­gional boss for Net­work Rail to speak to the Group on Wed­nes­day.

MPs hope to hear what les­sons have been learnt from the prob­lems pas­sen­gers have faced this year.

Co-chairs of the Group, MP Kevin Hollinrake and MP Barry Sheer­man, said: “Fol­low­ing a dif­fi­cult year for rail pas­sen­gers across the re­gion, MPs, Peers and oth­ers will want to know what fur­ther im­prove­ments they will be see­ing next year and be­yond to rail ser­vices across the re­gion.

“We look for­ward to the rail com­pa­nies and net­work rail ac­cept­ing our in­vi­ta­tion to ad­dress us.”
