A key meeting today offers hope to beleagured commuters whose trains have been recently plagued with serious disruption.
County council cabinet transport boss Derrick Ashley, who has condemned the recent service on the Great Northern and Thameslink routes as “appalling”, will ask train company Govia to implement an emergency timetable while its current driver shortage continues.
As some of the company’s critics have called on the Government to step in, Councillor Ashley has asked rail minister Paul Maynard to attend.
Govia runs both the Great Northern route serving Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield and Potters Bar, and the Thameslink route serving St Albans.
