Govia Thameslink faces being stripped of its franchises

Rail operator Govia Thameslink faces being stripped of its franchises unless performance on its services, across the South East including Worthing rapidly improves.

I remember the Herald campaign to remove the troubled operator from the claws of many commuters’ misery. With delays, cancellations and increased train fares a grim reality, has the Government finally had enough? Will change and action finally happen?

Thameslink services have been disrupted since a new timetable was introduced on May 20

Hard-working Worthing people need a decent, reliable, and fair train service!
