Railway executives are set to be quizzed by the public next month.

Train users are invited to question executives from Govia and Network Rail about servies between London and St Albans at a public meeting in February.

The meeting, arranged by St Albans City and District Council's planning, resources, housing and commercial scrutiny committee, will include questions from the public and councillors.

Cllr Roma Mills, the committee’s chairman, said: "The Thameslink service continues to be a major issue for the tens for thousands of our residents who commute to London.

"There have been improvements over the last year, but we are hearing that many problems, such as driver shortages, persist. I know as well that many people were angered by the New Year fare rises and the promised overhaul of the city station to relieve platform congestion at peak times has still not happened.

"I’m sure people will take advantage of this opportunity to quiz Govia and Network Rail executives about their future plans."

The meeting will be held in the council chamber at the Civic Centre in St Peter's Street, on February 8 from 7pm.

Anyone who wants to raise an issue or put a question to the executives, via the councillors, should email scrutiny@stalbans.gov.uk by 12pm on February 5.
