Since being elected, I have made improving transport in Tooting a priority, from campaigning for Crossrail 2 to Tooting Broadway to bringing longer trains to Earlsfield Station.
Many local residents have contacted me with concerns that their commutes would be disrupted by the Southern Rail timetable changes. School children and commuters have seen their journey times increase, particularly those who travel to South East London.
I do not believe that Southern Rail have done enough to consult with rail users, particularly young people travelling to school. That is why I have contacted them to share local residents' concerns that fares are continuing to rise and delays are commonplace. Rail users deserve better and I am continuing to push for the Mayor of London to take over the franchise.
