Extra services for Radcliffe-on-Trent station put on by East Midlands Trains
12 December 2016
East Midlands Trains customers in Radcliffe-on-Trent will now benefit from a new timetable, offering new and improved services to Nottingham city centre to the west and Grantham and Skegness to the east.
The improvements were introduced yesterday (11 December) and are in response to feedback and ideas from local East Midlands Trains customers, stakeholders and communities, to enhance the options available.
After the official ceremony to celebrate the extended services from Radcliffe-on-Trent station, local schoolchildren boarded the train to Nottingham to get a taste of the new service. They then enjoyed a tour of Nottingham station which was led by East Midlands Trains’ Matt Bamford, Customer Experience Manager.
Rt Hon Kenneth Clarke QC, MP for Rushcliffe, said: “I am delighted that East Midlands Trains are providing new and more frequent trains between Radcliffe and Nottingham in response to many years of campaigning. I hope many people will abandon their cars and the traffic jams and enjoy the new service.”
Lawrence Bowman, Commercial Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “The new and improved services will have a really positive impact for local residents looking to travel to the east or west of the region around Nottingham city centre during the day.
“These changes are the result of feedback from the local community and we are delighted that they have been introduced.
“We will continue to work with local partners and groups to find further ways to develop and improve our services across the network.”
