I’m writing in response to the letter published in the Advertiser from reader Denis H about Ilkeston Station.
Ilkeston will be getting a station and we are doing all we can to get it built as soon as possible.
We have had some real difficulties but these are being overcome.
We hope that work will start next spring, with the station opening later in the year.
We know that this will be frustrating for local people, as it is for us, but we are doing all we can to get the station built as quickly as possible.
Please accept our apologies for the delays, but rest assured we are doing all we can.
