No Branch Line for Clacton/Walton/Frinton Lines

This petition had 268 supporters

It has been brought to my attention that Abellio Greater Anglia are now planning to make the train line to Clacton-on-Sea a branch line, changing at Colchester and for Walton on the Naze and Frinton-on-Sea, they would have to change again at Thorpe-le-Soken. I can not believe that with all the development in the area, all the money they are taking from their customers in the area, that we will be reduced to extra travel time home everyday. Currently it takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes from Liverpool Street, this could add 15/20 on the journey time, plus waiting in the cold for the branch train, this might not seem very much, but when you don't get home till 7pm and get the 4.44pm Clacton train from London, it is!. Most commuters from Clacton get trains from 5.20am, this is a very long day, which would only get worst if Abellio have their way! If you want direct trains from Clacton-on-Sea to London and back, sign this petition!
