Earlier this year Ruth Edwards MP submitted proposals to the Department for Transport which seeks to improve the train service at Radcliffe train station. Currently the trains are not frequent enough, and the service ends too early, making this an unattractive means of transport between Nottingham and Grantham for work and leisure.
The proposal makes the case for improving the frequency of the rail service to one that is every 30 minutes during peak times and an hourly service at non-peak times, whilst improving the accessibility and capacity of station so that there is step free access on all platforms and increased spaces at the train station car park to accommodate increase usage.
In order to keep up the pressure, Ruth Edwards has launched a survey giving residents in Radcliffe on Trent and surrounding areas the chance to voice their concerns about the service at the station so that as the local Member of Parliament she can show the need for this investment to Government.

On launching the survey Ruth said:
“We all know how important improving the service at Radcliffe train station will be for the community. That is why now is the time to put pressure on the Department for Transport and make the case for these improvements.
“If we want these improvements to the frequency, accessibility and capacity of the station we need to act now! Completing the survey will allow us to demonstrate how strongly residents feel about this issue.
“I would like to thank all those who have helped on the bid, from local campaign groups to Rushcliffe Borough Council so that we can make the case to Government. However, we need to keep up the momentum so we can secure these upgrades.”
