Cllr Robert Saunders has written a letter to Network Rail / South West Trains to express concern at the considerable disruption and inconvenience caused to rail users in Alton in recent weeks. Robert said “For South West Trains to call them “teething problems” is lamentable. Millions of pounds have seemingly been invested in signalling technology that does not work! For too long Network Rail and South West Trains have treated the Alton line as a cinderella service. Every time there is a problem somewhere on the network the Alton line is always the first to suffer”. Robert has also raised the matter with local MP Damian Hinds.
