East Coulsdon Residents’ Association (ECRA) are concerned that although over 400 people from Coulsdon complained to GTR about the loss of stops in the Reigate and Tonbridge service at Coulsdon South and the loss of the Tattenham Corner shuttles, changes will not be made. In addition, it appears that an additional peak hour train for Coulsdon South will not be provided, as promised.
East Surrey Transport Committee also conducted a survey of over 1000 off–peak passengers at Coulsdon South and undertook a number of surveys on the Tattenham Corner shuttle trains. These showed an overwhelming demand for these trains to continue to stop at Coulsdon South and at least the first and last Shuttle trains to continue.
ECRA are asking people affected to protest about this treatment of Coulsdon, the only area that ends up with worse services than now, by signing the petition below and emailing the completed petition to firstname.lastname@example.org
