John Stevenson will be meeting with Claire Perry on Thursday 26th February 2015 at Carlisle Train Station.
For a number of years John has been of the opinion that there should be a transport hub at the rear of Carlisle Station. He has made this point both to Carlisle City Council through his contributions to the Local Plan and to Government Ministers at the Department for Transport.
Earlier this year John met with Minister for Trains, Claire Perry regarding this underutilised space and she has agreed to visit Carlisle to see the space for herself.
John said ‘The underutilised space behind Carlisle Station, as I have said on many occasions, is perfect for a transport hub including buses, taxis and parking spaces for those collecting people from the station. Currently there is a great deal of congestion around the station and the solution to this seems simple.
I look forward to Claire seeing for herself the potential that this idea has and the difference it would make to accessibility within Carlisle.’
John will also be visiting Warwick Bridge with Claire Perry and Guy Opperman to highlight their campaign to improve the A69 which has now been granted a feasibility study.
