Nottingham and Lincoln are two of the major cities that drive economic growth in the East Midlands. The railway line through Newark Castle that connects the two has a train service that is arguably one of the worst in the UK. The service frequency is around half that of some seaside branch lines and the fastest journey time is slower than over 100 years ago with an average time of no less than 60 minutes for the 33¾ mile end-to-end journey.

It’s time for change and Newark Business Club are mounting a campaign to persuade Government that there is a persuasive argument for improvements to the service between Nottingham, Newark and Lincoln. Without these improvements the economic development of the areas will be seriously affected. Join them now by clicking on this petition link http://railfair.co.uk/ (it only takes a minute). The aim is to get over 5,000 signatures and secure change.
