Chloe Smith, MP for Norwich North, will on Thursday 17th May chair a second summit meeting to discuss the ongoing work to improve rail services in Norwich and East Anglia.
Chloe will be joined in the meeting by other regional MPs, representatives from Local Enterprise Partnerships, and Greater Anglia, Train Operating Companies and local authorities.
The agenda will include a detailed briefing on the technical and economic studies being carried out to make the strongest possible case for improvements to be made to the region’s rail network.
Chloe is leading the call for the improvements, including:
- Improved infrastructure
- Higher quality rolling stock
- Increased reliability
- Faster journey times
LEPs including New Anglia will present detailed information about the technical work being done in connection to an ‘East Anglian Rail Prospectus’ to be put to Ministers at the Department for Transport.
“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for a commitment to the long-term benefit of the East Anglian, Norfolk and Norwich economies.
“This summit is a working session to present emerging work. It is part of a much longer sequence including vital political lobbying for our area. We have a passionate, unified campaign emerging which makes simple, right demands.”
