Mark Prisk MP has updated constituents on the local rail service:
'Rail minister Andrew Jones and I met in Stevenage to check out ongoing works to deliver new infrastructure on both the Hertford Loop and East Coast Mainline. With this, train services will be more reliable and provide better connectivity to passengers.
The dreaded rail replacement bus service, which is needed while the new infrastructure is constructed, is an issue which directly affects many of you. ⠀
The scheme has been accelerated to resume rail services as quickly as possible - it’s now expected that train services will begin again in the Summer 2020 timetable.'
