Local residents surveyed by Streatham Wells Lib Dems said that making local rail services more reliable is a top priority on transport.
Commuters have put up with Thameslink and Southern Rail's incompetence and thoroughly dreadful service for far too long. According to the National Audit Office, our rail routes have consistently higher levels of disruption than anywhere else on the national rail network.
With their contract set to expire in 2021, we are calling for Thameslink and Southern to be sacked now and for Transport for London (TfL) to take over local rail services.
We also want to see improvements to Streatham stations, including a new exit at Streatham station via Russell’s Footpath to ease congestion and improved access for disabled people.
Dominic Leigh, Lib Dem council candidate for Streatham Wells ward, said: “As a local commuter from Streatham to London Bridge, I know how shocking the level of service Southern delivers can be.
“We urgently need TfL to take over local rail services to bring real improvements to both our stations and services.”
