Ministers should stop dodging accountability, halt this sham consultation, and come clean on the damage these closures will do.
Over 150 million passenger journeys will be hit by this move, and yet there have been no equality impact assessment, and basic questions on job security, accessibility and the roll-out of technology have been left unanswered.
That’s why disability groups and also many Tory MPs, are calling on the government to think again.
And why the passenger watchdogs have slammed the process and demanded equality impact assessments are urgently published.
Railroading this botched plan through in just 21 days, without consideration for staff and disabled passengers, only risks exacerbating this Government’s managed decline of the rail network.
Please add your name to my petition.
A petition to save our railway ticket offices in Leamington, Warwick and Warwick Parkway stations from closure.
We the undersigned:
The decision to close nearly all ticket office stations across England will have a huge impact on passengers who use the service and look to the ticket office staff for support and guidance as they’re booking their journeys.
Closing our local ticket offices will leave many rail users without the valuable assistance they currently receive and cause real problems for vulnerable and disabled customers who will not be able to access the same level of service and support if having to use a ticket machine.
The staff at our local stations are always on hand to offer guidance and help and have worked tirelessly through some really tough years. Through the pandemic, they were on the frontline, serving customers despite the risk to their health and keeping our rail services moving.
The focus should be on providing customers with the much used and appreciated service at our local stations, not making changes that will make it harder for passengers to purchase tickets and get advice from ticket office staff.
With only 21 days allowed for the consultation, it is crucial that the opposition to these plans is made abundantly clear.
