"Passengers must come first" - Ed Davey

Local train services have been labelled “a scandal” by Kingston and Surbiton’s MP, Ed Davey, after 18 months of delays and cancellations.

Ed has written a hard-hitting report — “Passengers must come first” — with 12 recommendations to end the shocking performance.

On South Western Railway (SWR), he says Ministers should either sack them, or impose a new performance-related contract.

On Network Rail, he welcomes recent top management changes, but backs new investment for a maintenance backlog to end high levels of speed restrictions.
