I saw an article in the Chad recently about a petition that has been launched to extend train services from Mansfield to Worksop on Sunday's. I thought it was worth giving an update with the great news that we've already secured this improved Sunday service on the Robin Hood Line earlier in the year as part of the new contracts for East Midlands Trains.
When the contract came up for renewal I pressed the Minister to include a number of Robin Hood line improvements as part of the requirements. These include refurbished trains, WIFI, a full business case for an extension to the line through Warsop to Ollerton within 12 months and yes, also extended evening and Sunday services! So fear not commuters and leisure travellers, Sunday service is on its way!
I know I don't need to prove things to you guys, trust is mega high in politicians already.... but just in case, here is a link to my Westminster Hall debate in July this year on Notts Transport where I pushed the Minister to confirm the new proposals.
