BBET Response to Labour’s Rail and Urban Transport Review

Published: 25 January, 2024

Bring Back Euro Trains has submitted a response to the Labour Party’s call for evidence for their Rail and Urban Transport Review.

In this election year, we are calling on Labour to help clarify UK-EU border crossing requirements, which are due to change in October. We also call on Labour to recognise the importance of cross-Channel stops at Ashford and Ebbsfleet stations to our commitment to net zero.

We advocate for a commitment to designate Ashford as a regional railway hub. Such a designation would help relieve congestion in London and make best use of Ashford’s central position in the county for rail transport across the South East, as well as into London via HS1.
