Complaints Made About Burley and Hyde Park In Leeds

Complaints Made About Burley and Hyde Park In Leeds

A number of complaints have been made from individuals in the densely populated student areas of Burley and Hyde Park in the Leeds, West Yorkshire area, on the lack of space on trains running from Burley Station to Leeds Station in the city center. Burley Station itself, situated behind a Cooperative food and drinks outlet on Cardigan Road, appears now and again on television in the soap opera Emmerdale in which it plays a supporting role as Hotten train station, one of the better acted performances of the popular TV drama.

However, those feeling that the star-studded appeal of this location does not rise to the expectations would be right in expressing their concern that the amounts of people using them especially between the hours of half past seven and half past nine in the morning are so huge that many are forced to wait for later trains and therefore arrive in late for work. It seems a matter of concern that the trains are frequently packed to the brim and often resembles a bad day on the London Underground. A number of these commuters have expressed their outrage that the carriages simply cannot cope with the demand for the service, but it seems that very little has been done to attend to these concerns.

The station similarly suffers from frequently broken schedule machines and a ticket machine that is more than often out of order. Whilst passengers and ticket guards are more than often cooperative to fit as many individuals into the limited train carriage space available as possible, the amount of congestion on these carriages is a regular worry and concern for commuters wishing to travel along the Leeds-Knaresborough route. With all of the Network Rail upgrades and improvements going on in all far reaches of the land, is it not time that something was done for the passengers wishing to commute to and from Leeds from Burley Park?
