Pressing for Deal and Sandwich Rail Improvements

This week I joined forces with Sandwich MP Laura Sandys, Kent County Council, Dover District Council and South East Train representatives, pressing for improvements to Deal and Sandwich rail services.

The meeting was attended by KCC leader Paul Carter, KCC Highways Cabinet Member Cllr Bryan Sweetland, DDC leader Cllr Paul Watkins and Vince Lucas of South East Trains.

We wanted this high level meeting to see if rail improvements can be achieved. It was a very positive meeting and all parties involved are looking carefully at what can be done. I am cautiously optimistic that we may see changes. In Deal, Cllr Julie Rook and I have been campaigning hard on this issue. We know this is really important for our local economy that Deal is as connected as it can be.
