Mike has written to the Secretary of State for Transport about the Governmentís intentions over plans for Brighton Main Line 2.
Brighton Main Line 2 is a unique solution to solving many of the serious problems that face the most over-crowded routes between London, Sussex, Surrey and Kent, by re-opening a number of closed lines.
Mike is regularly contacted by constituents who are frustrated by overcrowding on trains on the London to Brighton line. In his letter, Mike asked the Secretary of State to whether or not she thinks that the Brighton Main Line 2 is a realistic project that is likely to come to fruition in the medium term.

Commenting, Mike said: ďAs a regular user of the slow and overcrowded Brighton main line, I am particularly interested in the BML2 campaign. Passengers pay huge sums of money and donít get a fair return, so I hope that the Government will consider the enhanced main line as an option for investing in rail upgrades for the densely populated south coast.Ē
