Brake Takes Up Cudgel for Commuters

January 29, 2004 12:00 AM

Commuters' frustrations with the state of local train stations were raised directly with South Central's boss, Charles Horton yesterday (28 January) by local MP Tom Brake.

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington was until recently the Liberal Democrats' Transport Spokesman.

He said, "Our meeting had three positive outcomes! Wallington, Carshalton Beeches and Waddon stations were all apparently omitted from South Central's station painting and refurbishment programme. They are all now back on it!"

Tom Brake also raised the issue of the closed exit gate at Wallington station which forces commuters to walk under the underpass and the shabby appearance of the approaches to both Carshalton and Wallington stations.

South Central have promised to look into these matters.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
