Andy Tyler is the Secretary of the Fen Line Users Association:
‘During the meeting with Network Rail and Govia Thameslink it became apparent that work needs to take place to the four level crossings around Ely and further surveys have to be done.
What I am keen to ensure is that this happens as soon as possible so I have called for a round table discussion with the LEPs, council leaders and fellow MPs to see how this can be implemented sooner rather than later.
The Transport Secretary has also confirmed that he will write to MPs by the end of this week detailing Network Rail’s plans for future works. East Anglia is a thriving and dynamic area of the UK and I am keen to see the rail infrastructure in place to support this growth and that residents in South West Norfolk can benefit from half hourly services on the Kings Lynn to London line and more frequent trains on the Thetford route.’
