Threat to Pewsey train services

    1. Petition by

      Pewsey Train Watch

      Woodborough, United Kingdom

Rail services provide a vital lifeline to Pewsey and its surrounding communities. The government has invited bids to run the next Great Western Region franchise. The current terms of the franchise invitation to tender (ITT) do not require that the winning bidder provide the current level of service between Pewsey and London Paddington. This means, at best, an uncertain future for 'through' trains from Pewsey to Paddington. Any 'downgrading' of services would almost certainly have a profound negative affect on the local economy far beyond the obvious inconvenience to commuters. We must act now to ensure we are part of the process and protect our vital train services.

      I work in London and live near Pewsey. Without the train station I would be forced to move.

      I rely on the direct service from Hungerford to get to London each day, where I am one of the directors of a small, but growing software company. My commute is useful as a fairly distraction-free time to get work done: I will potentially lose this if I am no longer able to use a direct service where I can usually get a seat in the mornings.

      Because I use it to commute to London and it would make my current situation unviable

      Everyone has paid taxes to have the right to transport. This shouldn't be taken away, due to the governments mismanagements and franchise greed.

      Without it I wouldn't be able to live here and work where I do!
