Marston Vale services
06 April 2023
Rail services on the Marston Vale line have been suspended since December 2022, with a rail replacement bus service in operation since then.
Transport Focus has been working with all parties (London Northwestern, passengers and user groups) to encourage them to:
- fully exhaust all safe and sustainable options
- ensure rail replacement services meet the needs of users as far as they reasonably and practically can as an interim measure
- work with all parties, but primarily passengers, to push for the restoration of rail.
On 3 April we wrote to London Northwestern calling for these services to be reinstated with urgency, and for a number of measures to be considered and implemented as soon as possible.
For passengers, it is essential this is expedited to see a safe, sustainable and resilient service restored, one that will allow passengers to have confidence for the future. You can read our letter below.
