I am pressing Southeastern Trains for the return of all-day high speed trains to Deal, Walmer and Martin Mill.
Deal’s high speed services were reduced as a result of the pandemic. Currently a peak time high speed service is provided for Deal, which has received support from Government to keep the service going.
Recently I met with Southeastern Train Services Director Scott Brightwell to make the case for all-day high speed services to return for Walmer, Martin Mill and Deal when timetables are updated.
I have been working hard to make our community’s case for Deal’s all-day high speed train services to be returned when rail timetables are updated.
The high speed train to Deal was hard won. It’s a vital service – allowing families to remain in our community and travel to work by train. Deal’s high speed train has also been a vital boost to tourism and our local economy.
That is why I am fighting for more services during the day as well as the peak time service. I’m hopeful that we will see a successful outcome as timetables are updated.
