Lib Dem Councillors Call on Rail Franchisee to "Go Figure How to Run a Railway!"

August 8, 2016 12:42 PM

Southern trainCllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst, Lib Dem Leader at Herts County Council, has welcomed the county council's letter to new Rail Minister Paul Maynard MP calling on him to get a grip on the appalling rail services offered to Hertfordshire commuters.

"This letter was prompted by LibDem questions at County Hall," Stephen said. "Enough must be enough for our hard-pressed commuters. The company's disastrous performance on its Southern franchise leading to huge cuts in scheduled services has had a knock-on effect for Watford and Tring."

Lib Dem County Councillor for Tring & The Villages, Nick Hollinghurst added Govia needs to go figure what running a passenger railway is about, or it's time for the Government to step in and remove the franchise!"
