Rail Services

Volume 456: debated on Wednesday 31 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what steps he is taking to improve rail services between Lancaster and Morecambe. (112638)

Between Lancaster and Morecambe, Northern Rail and Transpennine Express operate a total of 23 services in each direction between the hours of 06.28 and 22.48 on a Monday to Friday. In addition, Northern Rail also operates one service, in each direction, between Leeds and Morecambe, which, for operational reasons, does not call at Lancaster.

The Department for Transport does not have any plans to introduce additional services on this line of route beyond the current level of services that Northern Rail is contracted to deliver.
