I went to visit the Railway Minister, Mr Burns, yesterday afternoon.
I asked him to do two things for Wokingham.
First, I want him to put the right people at Network Rail into contact with Wokingham Borough Council, so they can start to sort out the issues about a new bridge over the railway to ease traffic congestion in Wokingham Town.
Second I pointed out that many users of the railway from Woklingham Station need to drive to the trains and therefore need adequate car parking. The present plans for the new station entail reducing the number of parking spaces, which will limit the use people can make of the trains.
The Minister was sympathetic on both grounds and promised to put the Borough in touch with the appropriate people at Network Rail. I will follow up to make sure discussions begin.
