Improved Rail Services

Representing a constituency like Chatham & Aylesford in the commuter belt, Tracey has campaigned for a fairer deal for rail users and for improvements to be made to the current franchise.  

This is an important issue for local residents and Tracey regularly raises concerns over punctuality, fare increases, capacity and quality of rolling stock with both Southeastern and Ministers at the Department for Transport. 

While there has been some progress on fares, with the Government commitment to cap regulated rail fares in line with inflation for the duration of this Parliament, significant concerns remain about the quality of service provided by Southeastern and Tracey will continue to fight for the improvements that passengers deserve. 

Tracey is urging all interested local residents to submit their views to the Government’s current consultation which is seeking views on the franchise and be accessed at the following website, with views welcomed until 23 May 2017.
