A petition has been launched to lobby Government for more investment to make Bramley Station safer for all.
Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves has launched the petition, saying the station is in need of investment, including vital improvements to lighting, seating and CCTV, as well as action to reduce the ongoing issues with overcrowding on trains.
Ms Reeves said:
“It’s simply not good enough that local people are forced to use stations with such poor provision and we need guarantees that action will be taken to make the station better for all.”
The petition calls on Northern Rail and Transport Secretary Chris Grayling to provide the improvements that Bramley Station needs.
The petition can be signed here.
Ms Reeves is also running a survey where station users can have their say on what needs to be done to make the station better for everyone.
While you’re here…
Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!
There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.
We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.
And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.
To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!
And we need YOUR help to continue …
For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).
