Clive has called for Govia, the company which has held the South Eastern franchise for years, to be refused permission to bid for the new franchise when it comes up for tender later this year. Speaking in Parliament, Clive highlighted the the consistent poor performance by South Eastern under Govia.
Passengers were told to put up with a worse service during the refurbishment of London Bridge with the promise that things would get better after the work was complete. Now the work is finished, passengers are still having to deal with a train service that is unreliable and are also being told that the Victoria line trains on the Bexleyheath line are going to be scrapped under the new franchise.
Clive is calling on residents to sign a petition demanding that plans to scrap victoria trains from the Bexleyheath line be halted, you can add your name to the petition by clicking here.
