For years people have asked for the Transpennine train to stop at Eaglescliffe rather than us having to go to Yarm to catch it. Now that government is consulting on the next franchise for the route we have asked for this stop to be included. The full text of our submission is as follows:
To Northern TPE Consultation Co-ordinator
4/15 Great Minster House
33 Horseferry Road
30th June 2014
Open consultation: Future of Northern and TransPennine Express rail franchises
This response is primarily under Consultation Question OTH1 (Other Views) but touches on DTD1 & DTD2 (door to door experience) and NTSR1 (improving Northern connections).
Our proposal is that TransPennine Northern services to and from Middlesbrough stop additionally at Eaglescliffe.
We see the following advantages for the public:
Since the Trans-Pennine service to and from Middlesbrough was introduced in the mid 1990's by British Rail we have had requests from residents for a stop at Eaglescliffe. When BR were planning the service, the footfall at Eaglescliffe was at its nadir, but it is once again becoming a popular station.
