Reinstate the trainline between King's Lynn and Norwich

Why is this important?

The roads in Norfolk are getting ever more crowded leading to long delays for commuters, frequent traffic jams, increasing air pollution and road traffic accidents. A regular train service will help reduce motorised road traffic, and therefore reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution; it will enable more people to use bicycles at either end of their train commute which in turn will improve health and wellbeing, reduce stress levels and result in greater productivity by enabling working en route and reduced travel time. A trainline will improve connectivity between Norwich and towns in Norfolk such as Dereham, Swaffham, Downham Market and Kings Lynn, making it accessible to many more people, not just to those with cars - giving a much needed boost to the region's economy.

Reasons for signing

  • A direct east-west rail link for Peterborough, King's Lynn and Norwich would help ease the A47 and be a more beneficial spend than HS2.
  • I support people back into employment and we really struggle to get them to so many fantastic opportunities which are only available in Norwich because transport links are so rubbish and many of the people i support do not drive. It is absolutely ridiculous that we do not have a rail link between the west of the county and Norwich!
