The pas­sen­ger view

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

Nick Cle­ments com­mutes from Chich­ester. On strike days, ser­vices are se­verely cur­tailed.

“Does any­one care about pas­sen­gers in all of this?” he asked. “This amounts to 13 days of strikes in 25 work­ing days. It is now time for the Govern­ment to step in and do some­thing about this dis­grace­ful sit­u­a­tion.

“We have had a year of daily de­lays amount­ing to five, six or seven hours a week. While we can claim for com­pen­sa­tion, this does not in any way make up for the de­lays. This com­pen­sa­tion of­ten ar­rives up to four months af­ter the event. I firmly be­lieve South­ern should re­duce the price of tick­ets by 50% for the du­ra­tion of this dis­rup­tion.

“It is now over­due for some rail­way pro­fes­sion­als to be put in charge of run­ning South­ern Rail­way, and not the am­a­teurs who are cur­rently run­ning it.”
