Yes, I have a personal interest in Item 14 which is looking very positive.

Looks very interesting.  I have heard rumblings / suggestions before - amazed I couldn't find a thread to started one at http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=21166.0 . Please fill us in there.

If anyone is interested, I have Lostwithiel Town Council's submission to the consultation as a word document.


That would be to the GW consultation rather than the St Ives one?   Very interested to hear what they have to say - maybe a separate thread?

Rumour has it that the Government is likely to ask for a three-month extension so that the summer timetable doesn't start until August this year.  Cheesy Wink

I should add that there's no truth to the rumour that they've approved a station at Pilning Westgate with Park&Ride facilities because they need SEWWEB votes to get the St Erth deal through...

Announced today....
7th May - 31st May,  bus transfer St. Erth to Lelant Saltings for connection into a train service to St. Ives,  apart from early morning & late evening services.  To do the platform work at St. Erth.

That'll be a fun half term & bank holiday

It's only 12 minutes by bus St Erth to St Ives - having got people on the bus at St Erth, wouldn't it be quicker simply to drive them to St Ives?

You would need a lot of buses to match the capacity of the train service.  Also avoids traffic congestion in St.Ives.
