Brighton and London MEPs respond to 'unblocking the Croydon bottleneck' consultation

Brighton and London MEPs respond to 'unblocking the Croydon bottleneck' consultation

December 16th, 2018

Network Rail has developed major proposals to upgrade the Brighton Main Line – which is thought to be one of the most congested routes in the country –  with the aim of providing more reliable, faster and more frequent services on the line and its branches.

Key to the upgrade are proposals to remove the most challenging bottleneck on Britain’s railway network at the ‘Selhurst triangle’ and East Croydon station as part of proposals for the East Croydon to Selhurst Junction Capacity Enhancement Scheme.

Green MEPs for Brighton and London, Keith Taylor and Jean Lambert, have submitted their response to the consultation with broad support in principle for the plans—so long as they are drawn up with the consent of the local communities in which they affect directly and minimise the environmental impacts of any work.
