Turning up to the station to find their train has been cancelled has sadly become a far too familiar experience for people in Calderdale
Services across the North of England suffer with outdated trains, lines that haven’t been electrified and poorly run services.
The Calderdale line has seen hundreds of cancellations and delays, making the lives of commuters who travel to places such as Leeds or Manchester a misery.
It is a testament to a lopsided view of rail investment by successive governments: Pour it into London and the South-East, and deliver a trickle elsewhere.
I/we the undersigned call for:
- Northern to give up the line so that a company which is capable of providing a reliable service can take over.
- Fair investment in Rail for the North of England
- The electrification of the Calderdale Line
Please note: We will pass on your name and address to the Secretary of State for Transport when we present this petition.
