Keep Clear signage at Hove Station



A few years ago we requested Brighton & Hove City Council to paint a Keep Clear sign on the road outside Hove Station as cars queuing for the car wash were causing difficulty for rail passengers entering and exiting the station car park.   We have asked the Council to repaint this sign as it has faded and this has now been done.
On Thursday 26 March we attended the formal opening by Rail Minister, Baroness Kramer, of the Brighton Station Cycle Hub.

Our committee have regular dialogue with the train operating companies.  We take up all issues in relation to train travel and have in the past been successful in securing the reinstatement and re-timing of services, reinstatement of station stops, improvements to certain safety issues such as securing platform changes, and have also dealt with problems at station retail outlets, station taxi ranks, bus companies which serve the stations (in this respect we have also been successful in securing timetables changes), and have contact with Network Rail, the British Transport Police, local MP's and local Councils.
