Sheryll has welcomed Great Western Railway in extending their consultation on ticket offices. She said, "I am pleased that Great Western Railway seem to be in listening mode and have extended their consultation on the possible closures of ticket offices. I have already said about my great concern over this issue relating to the help that that many people need including those less able, those without the technical skills or connection to do this online and, in our area which heavily relies on tourists, give the support holidaymakers need. I have already made representations to GWR through their consultation and directly to them, and they have now extended their deadline so others can raise their concerns too.
I have also written to the Minister with my misgivings over the way the industry is doing this. In my constituency this consultation covers both the Liskeard and Bodmin Parkway stations and whilst not in my constituency it also covers Plymouth which is used by many residents. The consultation has been extended to Friday 1st September and you can make your representations here: www.gwr.com/haveyoursay".
