FREE TRAVEL for all if rail chaos isn’t fixed in two weeks #thameslinkfail ...

According to the Daily Telegraph, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling is drawing up plans to strip the Thameslink and Great Northern routes - used by 230,000 passengers each working day - from the parent company if there isn’t a noticeable improvement by July 15 - the same day a new interim timetable will be introduced.

A removal of the rail franchises would see services run by a Government-controlled company until a new partner is awarded the franchises.

A Department for Transport spokesman said: "We will investigate whether GTR have breached their contracts and we won’t hesitate to take tough action against them if they are found negligent."

The Government has already reacted to the huge delays and cancellations to services in other parts of the country by awarding a month’s free travel to Great Northern passengers in Lancashire, Cumbria and Greater Manchester.
