Robert sends letter to Network Rail regarding recent disruption for Alton’s rail commuters

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.
