Lib Dems 'exasperated' by Woking's train service
The local Lib Dems have stated they are 'exasperated' by the regular failings on the South Western Railway network that serves Woking, following Monday's overrunning engineering works.
Lib Dem County Councillor for Woking South, Will Forster, said:
"Commuters are rightly angry and exasperated that after 18 months of appalling services, Woking Train Station was completely closed on Monday morning due to overrunning engineering works. The Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, Network Rail and South Western Railway need to take responsibility for not just the mismanagement of the engineering work, but the chaos that followed. They cannot expect passengers to keep putting up with such a poor service."
"My Lib Dem colleagues and I will continue to hold the Government, Network Rail and South Western Railway to account for the poor train services provided to Woking residents."
