Virgin Trains statement: Shrewsbury service proposal
_______________________________________________________________


date
9 April 2009

type Press release



Virgin Trains has today confirmed that it will not proceed with its plans to introduce a direct train service from Shrewsbury to London Euston.

Stakeholders were informed in March this year that this was an initial proposal and needed further investigation before Virgin Trains would seek approval from the Rail Regulator.

After several months detailed analysis on the proposal there is not a compelling case to justify additional trains, as evidenced by WSMR's recent withdrawal of part of its service.
