On Monday I launched my campaign to get Barking and Dagenham residents the first class train services they were promised.
When C2C secured the franchise for the London to Shoeburyness line, they promised that there would be a train from Barking into Central London once every three minutes at peak times.
However rather than improve the service they have cut it, with five peak-time trains no longer stopping at Barking station as of yesterday.
This is not on and I will not let C2C get away with this.
I am calling on C2C to do what they promised and immediately introduce the three-minute interval ‘metro-style’ service.
