Kevan Jones, MP for North Durham, is holding a public meeting in Chester-le-Street to discuss constituents’ concerns about rail services to the town.

The meeting will be held at 6pm on Thursday 20th September at Chester-le-Street Methodist Church and will be attended by representatives of Transpennine Express, Network Rail and Transport for the North.

Kevan Jones said :

“Chester-le-Street station is a vital link for local people, but in recent months passengers have suffered constant disruption, with services cancelled on a regular basis.

I have arranged this meeting so that constituents can speak directly to the representatives of the companies about the impact that these failures have, and to demand commitments from them to improve the service.

We need assurances that Chester-le-Street residents can rely on trains to the town, and that the Station is a priority for these organisations in their forward plans.”
