Railways: Closures

Volume 685: debated on Monday 9 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether any railway lines or stations in the United Kingdom are being considered for closure.[HL7387]

The only two proposals which are currently under consideration both form parts of wider rail development schemes which will provide significantly improved services to the areas concerned. One relates to the closure of the North London Line east of Stratford, to facilitate its transfer to the Docklands Light Railway, and the other to the realignment of the north-south route under central London as part of the Thameslink upgrade.
