Petition: Save Ashford International!
Summary of Aim: To safeguard international rail services at Ashford in Kent, UK.
Full Text of Petition:
To: Eurostar Management,
The British Government and The European Parliament. We ask Eurostar to make a public committment to maintain frequent International services running from Ashford to both Paris and Brussels.
Sign this petition.
Lib Dem Member of the European Parliament for the South East, Sharon Bowles, has launched this new website to save International train services in Ashford.
The international service has come under threat from new plans by Eurostar to make the new Ebbsfleet station the "hub" for the South East.
The volume of services from Ashford to the continent has been slashed, and residents and staff now fear for the future of international services from Ashford.
Sharon is now calling on local residents to sign her petition to safeguard Ashford's future as an International station.
Sharon said "It is deeply disappointing that Eurostar have chosen to make these cuts to the service. Now we must work to ensure they understand the importance of Ashford's international connections."
"If you use the international services at Ashford, please take a moment to send me a message letting me know how these cuts will affect you, and how you would be affected if the service stops completely."
"If you haven't used the international service, but perhaps have benefitted in some other way - perhaps you work for a business that was attracted by Ashford's links, I would love to hear from you too about how this affects you."
"I will take up the points you make with Eurostar's management, in my fight to safeguard frequent international services at Ashford."Save Ashford International
