Representation ID: 275

Received: 11/12/2009

Respondent: National Express East Anglia / c2c Rail

Representation Summary:

The document should make it clear that contributions may be expected towards the improvement of railway stations and access to those stations, primarily by sustainable modes. Evidence of the need for improvements may be provided by the Borough Council (through the LTP or completion of Station Travel Plans) or by the railway industry (through franchise agreements, investment programmes or route utilisation strategies). The document should reinforce the role of the railway as an efficient mass transit system for Southend - in particular the c2c line, with a dense network of local stations and a turn-up and go service.
