Our Trains Service

As a commuter, I understand the importance of the train service for passengers. So I am working hard for a better, more reliable service; for new trains and carriages; for better compensation rights when things go wrong; and for improved tracking and capacity in the system.

 

Stop Bengeo Quarry

Mark Prisk backs the Stop Bengeo Quarry (SBQ) campaign. He has met with members of the SBQ multiple times concerning plans for a gravel pit to be extracted. A number of constituents have contacted Mr Prisk stating their strong objection to the proposal, arguing that it would have significant adverse effects on the local residents and the local environment, including Bengeo Primary School. Mark Prisk has now written to a number of bodies to oppose this.

Securing superfast broadband

 Over recent years, Mark Prisk  has been lobbying hard to get the constituency, the funding needed for upgrading to superfast broadband. This includes Bishop's Stortford, Hertford and villages like Much Hadham. In 2014 we got confirmation from the Government that £6.6 million would be provided for the joint bid from Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire County Councils, some £4m is to be spent in Hertfordshire.
