Crawley Labour councillors and activists were up bright and early this morning discussing our three point plan for fixing the railways with Crawley commuters.
Under the Conservatives, the cost of a season ticket from Three Bridges to London Victoria has risen by £1,014, while at the same time railway conditions and reliability have dropped substantially. We need a railway system that works for the many, not just the railway bosses.
A Labour Government will deliver fares which are capped, a more reliable train service and more investment in our railways by undoing the crazy franchising system which means that railway companies do better by delivering less for commuters.
We’re standing up for Crawley commuters and I hope we can count on your support.
Cllr Peter Lamb
Leader, Crawley Borough Council
