A message from Chris Grayling MP about the Heathrow airspace consultation.

Firstly, I wanted to reassure you that the consultation is not specifically about Epsom and Ewell. Heathrow is carrying the consultation out across a large swathe of the London area so that people are aware that they want to make changes to their flightpath arrangements.

This is not a Government consultation, and indeed we have received […]

Dear constituent

It has taken far far more time than I would have wanted, but I am writing to let you know that the promise made by Southern Rail at the start of its franchise to introduce Oyster and Contactless Cards to Epsom and a group of stations in Hertfordshire is finally going to happen.

RMT Rail Strike

Dear constituent

As you may know, the RMT union has called strike action on both the Southern and South West networks on Wednesday and Thursday this week. I am not expecting serious disruption on Southern services, as there has been little impact on strike days across most of the Southern network since January, with virtually all […]

Oyster Card Epsom Station

As you will probably know, I was appointed Transport Secretary when Theresa May became Prime Minister in July. Sadly this doesn’t mean that I can automatically order Oyster cards for Epsom and rezone the station – there are strict rules (rightly) to stop Ministers doing pet projects in their own constituency. However the issue is […]

Southern Rail

I am, though, working as hard as I can to ensure that the problems on the Southern routes are dealt with as quickly as possible. The industrial dispute remains an ongoing issue. But it is not the only problem.

At the moment GTR, the train operating company, runs the trains, and Network Rail runs the tracks […]
