Lewes-Uckfield Line petition

Residents of Lewes and the surrounding area have put up with years of railway line closures, with buses jamming the narrow streets of Lewes and nearby country lanes. The Lewes-Uckfield line was closed in 1969, but simply re-instating this 7.3 mile length of track would open a connection in 10 minutes to a second route into London, relieving the pressure on the Brighton mainline and providing an alternative across East Sussex.

I support the Lewes Lib Dems campaign to improve public transport in Lewes, including the re-development of the Lewes-Uckfield line as an alternative to the Brighton mainline and the cancellation of the Southern Rail franchise.
