EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell says Eastbourne is in line for a huge boost to our railways.

She was talking in her weekly e-newsletter to residents.

Caroline said: “I had the chance to be briefed this week about exciting plans to improve our railways here in Eastbourne.

!The South Coast Mainline project could see our town connected to Ashford in Kent and with better services into south London.

“This would bring opportunities for work, the staycation market and being able to head into northern Europe.

“It’s in initial stages but there’s a strong team behind it and I will be talking to ministers in the coming weeks.. one to watch!”
