Brighton Mainline Update (Presentation)


15.1      The Board received a presentation from Rupert Walker of Network Rail on the Croydon area remodelling scheme that was a part of the Brighton Mainline Upgrade Programme.


15.2      Councillor Theobald stated that whilst the proposals would be welcomed by those living north of Three Bridges, there was no proposal for improvement to the network south of that area. Councillor Theobald stated he was personally of the view that a second line on the Brighton Mainline would prevent the rail disruption that occurred across the region on a daily basis.


15.3      Prof. Humphries noted that the schedule set out did not detail any plans for consultation events outside of Croydon that appeared short-sighted as the entire region would be affected.


15.4      Rupert Walker clarified that the consultation was still at a draft stage with a prominent focus of those properties most likely to affected and any suggestions for other areas could be incorporated.
