Dear Department for Transport,

We know that Southeastern Railway have been asking the Department for Transport for additional stock to bolster overcrowded services since 2015. Why haven't given them a better solution to help the railway solve the overcrowded services.

In a report you promised an imminent reply back in early 2016 with a decision by Spring 2016:“We received a detailed report from Southeastern in June [2015] regarding late 2016 and early 2018 capacity relief options and we continue to develop these options in collaboration.

Why haven't you allowed Southeastern Railway to have the chance of building a new depot to supported as this would give the additional trains to the network a place to stable during the night and weekends.

Could you also allow Southeastern Railway to stop there evening peak services from Victoria/Blackfriars at Crofton Park and Bellingham.

Yours faithfully,
The Crofton Park Transport Users' Group (A Cinderella Line)
