Southern Rail Public Meeting
16/05/2016 11:03:00

 
 

Southern Rail has been one of the biggest issues facing our neighbourhood for some time. The constant delays have plighted commuters and leisure travellers alike.

I have been complaining to Ministers, Southern and Network Rail and it is now time for residents to get a chance to hear from the train companies directly. To this end, I am hosting a Public meeting on 24th May at 7.30pm at Purley United Reform Church (in the hall). This is at 906 Brighton Road, Purley CR8 2LN, next to Hospital. There is no parking on site, so people driving are advised to use the multi-story or the pay & display hospital car park.

There will be representatives from Southern and Network Rail in attendance who will be giving presentations before opening the floor to a Q&A.

Southern’s performance is abysmal – the worst of any line in the country. The latest performance data showed only 82.7% of services were arriving on time compared to a national average of 91.2%. 5.4% of trains were also either cancelled or over 30 minutes late. Nationally this is 2.7%. If I do not get suitable answers I will be calling on them to lose the franchise.

Everyone is welcome to attend and share their views on our current train service. Do come along and have your say about our train services.
