To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will meet representatives of Govia Thameslink Railway to discuss Great Northern Line rail services at Oakleigh Park.
Answer (Joseph Johnson)
I have instructed my officials to investigate Great Northern Line rail services at Oakleigh Park with Govia Thameslink Railway representatives. I understand that the issue which you have raised with Govia Thameslink Railway will be resolved by the end of 2018 when the new Class 717 trains are introduced.
Govia Thameslink Railway have been keeping the Department updated as to preparations for the introduction of the new timetable. The next timetable iteration will commence on 20th May 2018 and begin to introduce the many benefits of the Thameslink project.
