Rail industry leaders have backed the latest steps by Southern to help passengers affected by disruption to its services.

Paul Plummer, Rail Delivery Group chief executive, said:

“We are sorry when passengers are disrupted. Southern’s temporary revised timetable should mean more reliable services overall and will help customers plan their journeys better, with more certainty about which trains will run.

“Britain needs a modern railway to carry ever more passengers, and to support housing, jobs and the economy, helping the country to grow and prosper. Billions are being spent on new trains, better stations and more services, making up for decades of underinvestment.

“Standing in the way of modernisation puts this vital upgrade at risk and is against the interests of passengers, our workforce and the country as a whole. Britain has Europe’s safest and fastest-growing railway, and we cannot afford to fall behind other countries by failing to embrace new technology and new ways of working that benefit our customers.

“Trains where drivers open and close doors are nothing new, and deemed safe by rail safety experts and the independent regulator which oversees safety on the railway. It means other on-board staff who are trained in safety are free to help passengers more and to improve customer experience. No jobs or pay will be cut.”
