LAST CHANCE FOR FIRST GREAT WESTERN TO GET BACK ON TRACK

2008 Chwefror 26 12:00 AM

Responding to the announcement that the Government has issued a remedial notice against train company First Great Western for the number of train cancellations that exceeded the threshold under its franchise agreement, Jenny Willott, Welsh Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, said:

"Today's announcement should be treated as the last chance for First Great Western.

"The company is lucky not to have had its franchise removed given the appalling service it has offered in recent months and especially now that it admits to misreporting figures.

"The remedial package should offer some relief for rail passengers across South Wales who have been left facing long delays, last minute train cancellations and overcrowded carriages.

"First Great Western have come to the end of the line. The company must now deliver on the promised improvements. Any breach of this agreement should be treated as a default, terminating the contract."
