Better Public Transport

I commute daily into London and know from personal experience the frustrations over Thameslink's failures. I have constantly raised these failures in Parliament have held Govia Thameslink and Network Rail executives to account in a public meeting. This is the first of many.

Last year I presented the Transport Secretary with a dossier of all your complaints. This resulted in me securing an additional £300 million investment in Thameslink, as well as a commitment to enhance capacity at Borehamwood Station.

I know commuters in Potters Bar and Radlett are frustrated by the lack of Oyster. I met with the Rail Minister and secured a commitment that it will be delivered by 2018.

I've also made the case for improved facilities at Bushey Station and helped secure key bus routes through Bushey and Potters Bar.

There is much more work to be done to improve services for commuters and as your MP I will continue my work to secure these on your behalf.
