Your thoughts for improving Bramley Station


I've been contacted recently by a number of constituents concerned about the condition of Bramley Station. I'd therefore like to ask for your views on how the station could be improved?

We appreciate all ideas and will look to develop them into a wider consultation on improvements at the station.

debates about public transport in the area have been going on and on, think they would still be debating NGT if the inspector had not so rightly cancelled it. There has been nobody within local or national government with the guts to stand up and forcefully promote what is needed for the whole area. Party politics have played too big a part in any discussions and that has failed the electorate. That failure to put party attitudes aside for the benefit off the community as a whole has left the area bereft os a viable transport system. I have submitted ideas to differing bodies without response or appraisal, ideas that would have altered and improved the transport amenities and the services provided. A personal response from one councillor was “Do you know how much that costs?”….. £1900 per head in London, £692 per head in the NW and £196 per head in Yorkshire. Think you should regale your colleagues in Westminster and unite for the area so that the benefits start flowing to here.

Bramley Station.

This site could be the possible scenario for a viable park and ride location. The area that used to serve as goods lines and sidings at the top of the southern embankment could be developed into a large parking area with access from Swinnow View to the West ( down past Maddens and up the embankment.) The platforms should have been reconstructed as per the old station directly opposite each other, but be that as it may, pedestrian access has to be made easier to each platform as each journey requires some stamina either going or returning.
