Roberta opposes changes to Cross Country train route

"I am saddened to see proposals put forward by the Government that would reduce the service on the Cross Country route from Durham to Chester-le-Street and beyond. This is an important route for people in Durham to get to and from work, or to visit family.

As with the recent chaos on Northern and Thameslink Route, the Government prefers to simply reduce the frequency of services rather than invest in infrastructure.

The Government have talked about delivering a “Northern Powerhouse” for years now but in terms of investment in transport connectivity, the North East always misses out and we seem to be going backwards."
