East Midlands Trains recently announced changes it was making to it's timetables, from May 2018, to allow for upgrade works to take place on the Midland Main Line. Details of the proposals can be found here: EMT GTR May 2018 Timetable Letter.

I am very concerned at this group of changes which appear to reduce services which are vital to my constituents, considering we have not had the consultation response from earlier this year. The details on this suggest it has been in 'long term planning' presumably during the consultation.

I have arranged an urgent meeting for local MPs to see representatives from East Midlands Trains, Govia & the Department for Transport. I have heard from a number of constituents already, but please do email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I will update my website and Facebook page further following this meeting.
