Rushcliffe Borough Council has urged East Midlands Trains to increase the frequencies of trains calling at Radcliffe-on-Trent and Bingham stations.
It is calling on central government commitment to help increase the number of trains stopping at the station at peak times from every hour to every half hour.
These calls are in response to a consultation by the Department of Transport to help shape long-term improvements to the East Midlands rail franchise.
In addition, the council has taken the opportunity to express its disappointment in the cancellation of the electrification of Midland Main Line less than two years after this frequently-delayed scheme was originally given the go-ahead.
It has asked the Secretary of State to reconsider his decision as a matter of urgency.
Councillor Andy Edyvean, cabinet holder for economy and business, said: “The Borough Council’s primary goal remains to see improvements to the Nottingham to Grantham Poacher Line to benefit our local communities and help promote wider economic growth of the area.”
The Local News contacted East Midlands Trains for a reply and they said the matter was in “response to the Department for Transport’s consultation for the next franchise and doesn’t relate to East Midlands Trains”.
