Southern Rail Commuters Face Further Disruption – Try Working from Home
Just when commuters in the south thought that the challenges of travelling into London could not get any worse, they faced further disruption this morning as Southern Rail discovered a second sink hole has opened up in Forest Hill, just weeks after a collapsed sewer under tracks caused days of delays.
Emergency engineering repairs meant that there were no trains between East Croydon and London Bridge this morning and delays are expected until 6pm this evening. Commuters were forced to switch trains at East Croydon and travel to their destinations via Victoria and the underground.
This is in the same week that Southern have given warning of 5 days of strike action 8th-12th August and Jeremy Corby has been calling on the government to renationalise the Southern rail services, claiming Southern are not fulfilling its obligations under the franchise it was given.
All of this is on the back of Southern passengers having faced delays, cancellations and a reduced timetable amid staff shortages and strikes for many months now.
