• commuter chaos

    Commuters returning to work this morning were faced with more intolerable delays and cancellations. It is not good enough. I’m supporting calls by Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram for:

    1) An agreed action plan with Northern, the Department for Transport and Transport for the North to be published which outlines clearly what the problems are and when passengers can expect to see improvements.

    2) A deadline for the payment of outstanding Delay Repay claims and compensation for season ticket holders.

    3) A commitment that if Northern does not adhere to the action plan that it will be stripped of the franchise.
