“In the meantime, we are left to pick up the pieces of the government’s decision to scrap direct train routes from the borough to London this summer and the challenge of finding money for ongoing highways maintenance remains. We are also still waiting for step free access to be delivered at Wellington Station despite it being announced five years ago.”
