Oliver secures funding for local train station improvements.

Oliver has secured funding for improvements to Radlett, Elstree & Borehamwood and Potters Bar stations from Govia Thameslink.

The improvements to the stations will be funded as part of Govia Thameslink’s £15m Passenger Benefit Fund which has been established after the severe disruption to their services last year.

Radlett, Elstree & Borehamwood and Potters Bar stations were among the worst affected last year and have been allocated the maximum of £80,000 each for improvement works to be carried out.

Local passengers are being consulted on what improvements should be made and how the money is spent.

Oliver said:  ‘The disruption we endured on Thameslink and Great Northern trains last year was unacceptable, and that is why I am pleased nearly £20m has been paid out in compensation since.

‘To start making things right, I am pleased to have secured funding for improvements to Radlett, Borehamwood and Potters Bar stations as part of the £15m Passenger Benefit Fund.

‘Passengers can suggest what improvements should be made to their local station and I would encourage everyone to do so.’
