Overcrowding is becoming an increasingly serious issue on UK rail services. Some of the worst hit lines in the North-West travel to and through, Salford Crescent (UK). Passenger numbers have dramatically increased over recent years but this has not been matched by a sufficient increase in the number of carriages. This is despite annual fare rises over and above the rate of inflation and enforcing of ticket collection.
We would like carriages that become available from electrification to be added to the worst affected lines in the North-West to ease overcrowding. We also support any further improvements that can be made to punctuality and passenger well-being which is currently lacking in some areas.
