  • Woking Train Station
    Article: Dec 1, 2017
    By Will Forster

    Woking has been completely ignored in the Government's latest rail strategy. The Conservative Government announced its new rail strategy today, but Woking was not mentioned once - despite Woking being a key transport hub and having some of the most over overcrowded trains in the country.

    Despite years of debate over Crossrail 2, a new railway line to connect stations in the North of Surrey with Hertfordshire via Central London which is key to relieving congestion in and out of London Waterloo, is still unfunded. A rail link to Heathrow Airport, refurbishment of Woking Station and widening of Victoria Arch were also not referred to in the rail strategy.

    According to the research, the nearly 10% currency depreciation is responsible for an increase in inflation of 1.7% - equivalent to £404 pa or £7.74 per week - THIS IS WHAT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED.

    Commenting on the letter published by OFSTED today, Councillor Chris Botten, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Children & Families, said:

    "These are very serious criticisms of Surrey County Council, 3 years after the County Council's Children's Services were inspected by OFSTED and subsequently rated as "inadequate". There is a long list of failings that have been identified: the poor quality of social work, weaknesses in managerial oversight, children not receiving the right help at the right time and, in some cases, children being at risk of harm.

    Liberal Democrats have called upon Surrey County Council to improve and expand its provision of services to children with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND). The County Council spends a total of £237 million on SEND services for children and young people, educates 822 SEND students outside of the county, and spends nearly £27 million on travel costs for SEND students. Liberal Democrat county councillors have tabled a motion, to be discussed at Council next week, calling for the Conservative-administration to invest in more SEND provision within Surrey, in order to reduce the number of placements outside of the county, as well as reducing travel costs and times for children and parents alike.
