Mitcham Eastfields station opens

After nearly a seventy year wait, just aftet 4 today the new Mitcham Eastfields station opened and services commenced. They had orginally meant to start this morning but due to techincial issues the opening was delayed till this afternoon.

The new station will impove travel significantly from the Mitcham area, and especially from my council ward of Pollards Hill, part of which is near to the station. London will now be only twenty minutes on the train, along with providing a direct link to the Eurostar station at St Pancras and to Luton Airport. Hopefully the station will also act as an economic stimulas for the area and bring much needed new investment into the area.

Its been a long time coming but at last its here.
