Current plans could see Peterborough train station's service to London King's Cross cut be up to 50% in 2010 to "speed up" Glasgow to London services. Sign this petition to show Network Rail and ATOC that you will not stand for this.

Steve marsh, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: I commute daily from Peterborough to York. Reducing the number of trains between these two stations at normal commuting times will make it less viable to commute daily. The introduction of more direct York to London trains a couple of years ago restricted my options to travel home, but did not significantly change the stops during peak hours. Travel in peak hours is normally driven by the need to get to and from a place of work on a regular basis. Reducing the ability to do this is likely to drive more travellers onto the roads, which is surely the wrong thing to do? Steve
Ian Steen, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: I cannot believe that the Govt. can sanction this idea as it conflicts considerably with trying to improve our individual travelling habits. Perhaps reducing the daily commute costs of train fare and station parking would encourage more rail travel. This would be a positive strategy.
