Southern Rail in Chaos
Southern Rail services across the south east have been thrown into chaos effecting millions of commuters. Caterham has not been as badly hit as other areas, but many trains have been cancelled from Upper Warlingham. A lot of commuters from Caterham use that line for fast trains.
Cllr David Lee who commutes regularly says, “I’m now catching the train half an hour or an hour earlier just in case a train is cancelled. I avoid trying to change trains a East Croydon as trains are so packed (or get cancelled)”
David continued, “Also I’ve experienced getting on a train on Victoria and the train gets delayed then cancelled and no information is given.”
Local commuters have put up with Southern Rail's incompetence and thoroughly dreadful service for far too long. The chaos needs to end NOW! Please sign Lib Dem MP Tom Brakes petition below calling for the abysmal Southern Rail to be sacked:
Govia Thameslink has brought all the terrible industrial relations it had at the Thameslink franchise and repeated this flawed model onto the Southern franchise.
David says, “Southern do not deserve this franchise, the government must step in I am shocked at Surrey Conservative MPs lack of action . I call on the new Transport Secretary to remove Govia Southern and get the service back to running properly.”
