Amber explained:

“With this summit, I am looking to build on the successes of past years which brought us major steps forward with campaigns to develop our area’s rail services. This event will add to the work of councils, businesses, MPs, transport campaigners and members of the public who have pushed for better infrastructure and transport provision in our area – from the major projects of duelling the A21 and campaigning for High Speed Rail, to the improvements which can be made to our everyday bus and train journeys.”
