High Speed Rail

Today's announcement that the fast train will stop at Deal is great news. The service will be a commuting service and start in October this year. There will be three trains to St Pancras in the morning and two back in the evening each day.

Having campaigned for this service over the last year, I am truly delighted by this announcement. It has been a team effort with our councillors in Deal, KCC and South East Trains.

We need more jobs and money in Deal and to boost the local economy. The fast train stopping at Deal is a key part of that.


Fantastice news Charlie - well done! I will be using the new service and can't wait.

Excellent news Charlie and well done! Now how about a bus that might bring us back from Canterbury after a meal/cinema/theatre??
