Reopen the Great Central Mainline from Northampton to Bedford

I would like the UK Government to consider reopening the former Great Central Main Line, I believe reopening this section of line has huge benefits, especially when it comes to improving public transport in both of these areas.

• Current bus journeys takes 1.5 hours each way, they are slow and this ruins the end to end dynamic appeal.

• Studies have proven potential for reopening and new ones should be done.

• Studies have shown a limited stop Thameslink train could provide an end to end journey duration of just 35 minutes each way.

• It would enable 2 Thameslink trains off the through tracks at Bedford per hour to take people on to Northampton, freeing capacity for other services
