“Please help me persuade London Midland to drain Alvechurch Station Car Park” – Andy Humphries

Description

Andy Humphries

For months the station car park has had a severe drainage problem....a small lake in the centre of the area. Several email requests to London Midland and Network Rail have achieved nothing. Flooding causes passengers to park in local streets annoying residents, Action is needed urgently.

    Dear Mr Humphries

    Thank you for your e-mail regarding the issue of drainage in the station
    car park at Alvechurch.

    I was sorry to hear that you have found part of the car park to be
    regularly flooded.

    I have since been advised that Network Rail is due to commence the
    installation of additional drainage within the car park at the end of this
    month. We are of course hopeful that will improve the situation once and
    for all.

    I should explain that as a train operating company we merely lease the
    stations from the landlords, Network Rail. Our jurisdiction would be to
    clear any blocked drains and in some cases to undertake minor repairs, any
    new installations or upgrades are handled by the landlord.

    I thank you once again for contacting us.

    Yours sincerely,

    Hello Andy

    FixMyTransport Volunteer here

    I was wondering if the small lake in Alvechurch Railway Station car park had been sorted.
