Kemble-Swindon Track Closure

Ahead of the closure of the Kemble-Swindon rail line Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, Member of Parliament for the Cotswolds has said: “I was naturally delighted when the Chancellor announced the £45 Million investment into the Kemble to Swindon rail line redoubling works, which followed a ten year campaign by me to achieve this.

“Obviously this work meant that at some point Network Rail would have to close the line to allow the crucial and necessary work to realign the current track and lay another one, to take place. This closure is all part of the planned operation which was decided last year.

“I attended the opening of the new garden at Kemble Station on the 25th July, with HRH The Prince of Wales, which was a fantastic occasion. At this event I spoke with both Network Rail and First Great Western who assured me that the works are still on schedule for the Kemble-Swindon track to reopen in time for Easter next year.”

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.

WHAT CAN AN MP DO FOR ME?

Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
