We recon that the BRTA have got it right.
With Flitwick overflowing and no significant additional parking available we thing the campaign to reopen Ampthill railway station may be a timely reminder of just how much both Ampthill and Flitwick have expended. with developments adjacent to the railway station at Ampthill heights it is defiantly time to have a rethink.
Local rail links and an open station has fuels growth in Flitwick and like it or not, a lot more development is coming to Ampthill.
Public transport is essential for the ever expanding commuter belt.
Even more weight is added to the argument due to the impending Centre Parcs development and easy access from the new Wixams (Ampthill is easier to get to than Bedford)
If we don't do this, the area will choke - quite literally
From our point of view, this is NOT a romantic notion dreamed up by nostalgia, I don't ever remember the station at Ampthill being open. But right now, I cant think why it is closed.
What do you think?
Have a great Spring Bank Holiday Weekend, and if you feel like being pro active why not search out the BRTA and add your support.
