Living Streets has responded to the Department for Transport's consultation on the new South Eastern rail franchise to begin in December 2018.

Get walking

It is good to see plans for the new franchise recognise the importance of high quality access to stations. The opportunity should be taken to encourage the new franchise holder to work with local communities to switch as many onward journeys from stations as possible to walking. This will help cut down congestion, air pollution and will remove the need for additional parking.

Steve Chambers, Policy and Research Coordinator, Living Streets

The consultation is open for responses until midnight on 30 June 2017.
