THE launch of a Network Rail consultation on how to improve our railway stations has been welcomed by North East Herts MP Oliver Heald.

The consultation, called Action Stations, gives the public the chance to have their say about assessment priorities at stations, the service stations offer and the role stations play in the communities they serve. Network Rail wants help in targeting its investment over the next five years, when it intends to spend �3.2 billion on stations across the country.

Mr Heald said: "My constituency has a large number of commuters and I would encourage them all to participate in the Action Stations consultation. This is their opportunity to say what improvements they would like to see at our local stations and how their daily journey could be improved."
