Closed petition Stop restoration of Ivanhoe train line from Leicester to Burton on Trent

We want the Government to stop restoration of the Ivanhoe train line from Leicester to Burton on Trent, which runs next to new and old housing.

More details

Restoring and reopening this passenger line could substantially reduce the value of homes, causing extreme financial hardship to families. The noise from passenger trains would also impact day to day life of the local people. The homes next to the line could lose the privacy of their gardens and homes. The line has not been open to passengers for decades. Please don’t ruin the lives of home owners in the area.
