Meeting with new MP for Harborough04th Sep 2017

We met the newly elected MP for Harborough, Neil O’Brien, at the Harborough District Council offices on 1st September.  He had got in touch with HRU shortly after the election offering to meet and we were very pleased to take up the offer.  We discussed both the station rebuilding scheme and the consultation for next franchise. Accessibility improvements at the station are a priority and we put the case for a lift from the booking office to the new platforms plus better shelter and facilities, especially at the planned new entrance to the southbound platform from the new car park.  We also discussed the recent decision to cancel electrification and the minimum service requirements we seek for the next franchise.  He is plainly keen to support us and we look forward to a fruitful working relationship.
