Executive Summary–Oct 2017

A study was commissioned by the Hastings Rother Taskforce in October 2014 (and managed jointly by East Sussex County Council, Hastings Borough Council and Rother District Council) to consider the economic and regenerative case for running high speed rail services to Bexhill, Hastings and Rye.

The report was made publicly available on 9 October 2015. The report and its outcomes will feed into Network Rail’s Kent Route Study process which starts in October 2015. It will support the technical work being undertaken by Network Rail on improving the Marshlink line between Hastings and Ashford to enable high speed rail services to run along the line.
