Perhaps we need to keep 'going on about it' a lot more, until it does happen.
The potential for this rail link to take traffic off the roads is enormous. I would hope that the ever increasing costs or using a car to commute on a daily basis, petrol/diesel, insurance, maintenance etc., plus the parking charges will make this an attractive alternative.
