Lichfield Rail Promotion Group campaigns for improved rail services and facilities in Lichfield District, fit for the current age and ready for the future. LRPG works together with other campaigning groups to lobby Network Rail, the train operating companies, local authorities and other bodies responsible for rail strategy.
The group formed in the 1980s to respond to the threat to Cross City Line services between Lichfield and Birmingham and had early success with its campaign for the modernisation and electrification of the line. Recently, the group has been successful in seeking Access For All funding for step-free access at Lichfield Trent Valley station.
2015: We are currently focusing on our campaign to restore passenger services between Lichfield and Derby, with a station at Alrewas to serve the National Memorial Arboretum. Please add your signature to our petition.
