Editor's Comment: London rail link could unlock door
WOULD a direct rail link from North East Lincolnshire to London make a big difference to the economic regeneration here?
And would the passenger numbers make it a viable option for a rail operator – the last thing we want is for such a service to start, only for it to stagger along for a few months and be withdrawn.
Well, the answer to the first question has to be yes.
Good infrastructure and transport links are essential if business is to be carried out successfully.
Urgently seeking two to four bedroom properties for our lengthy list of possible suitable tenants with the lowest fees in town and excellent turn around rate for sourcing and managing.

Here, we are indeed at the end of the line and anyone travelling from the capital knows just how off-putting it is to switch from the fast, hi-tech London train to the link facility from Doncaster.
So yes, to have a fast, efficient and straight-through service could well open up a lot of doors, especially those of potential investors.
In answer to the second point – does its usage depend on the price or the demand, based on economic activity? Well, probably both – if heavily promoted and reasonably priced then surely success will follow.
North East Lincolnshire could well be a powerhouse of industrial activity – and actually, we are not doing too badly already with the consolidation of the frozen food industry and a good renewables future. Maybe this rail link could well unlock the door to a better future.
