Croydon relies on its train connections, but we’re disadvantaged as a borough. Our network is in serious need of investment. It’s vital that funding for the Croydon Area Remodelling Scheme is included in the update to the Rail Network Enhancements Pipeline.
Croydon’s stations are in Zone 5, whilst stations farther from central London (in Chigwell and Hounslow) are in Zone 4. My constituents are disadvantaged to the tune of hundreds of pounds. I’ve written to the Minister asking him to ensure funding for CARS and rezone Croydon.
