I along with a very good representation from Whittlesey, made up the majority of the public attending this evenings update on The Community Rail Partnership.
Lead councillor Simon King gave a good update of where the partnership is at present.
In essence it was my understanding that there will not be a great deal of movement until the Government announces ‘who’ has won the next franchise in the area (June?)
Also attending from Whittlesey Cllrs Mrs K Mayor, Cllr A Bristow, Cllr B Wicks, Cllr R Butcher, Mr Andrew Overton (SP Friend of Whittlesea Railway) Mr B Esson Gray (SP)
Ms Anita Tricky (Blackbush rail user).
Mr Ken Mayor.
Cllr Mrs Mayor made the point of recent negative social media publicity concerning Whittlesey Railway Station.
The info charts gave (3) different possibilities of platform configurations.
Mrs Tricky made strong arguments about the present lighting issues, and this was well noted. There was an opportunity to engage one-to-one with Rail representatives from ‘Abellio Greater Anglia’
Cllr Simon King was very happy with the progress made since the last meeting.
No date was given as to when the next public engagement will happen.
