Working with the Department for Transport to improve northbound rail services from Corby:

I welcome the ongoing electrification of the Midland Mainline, which is a multi-million pounds boost in our local rail infrastructure, which will ensure cleaner, greener, and more reliable rail services, and the new half-hourly service to and from Corby to London St Pancras, which will be a real boost for our rail services here in North Northamptonshire, and something I have long campaigned for. However, I emphasised to the Minister that there is still a demand for more northbound services from Corby, that I believe we ought to be tapping the huge potential there, and would he help me to explore this possibility. The Minister explained that the new franchise will bring a wide set of positive developments for rail passengers in our area, and that he would happily meet with me to work together to see what we can do to make these services even better.
