Date of External Board/Outside Body Meeting Attended

Quarterly

 

 

Purpose of the External Board/Outside Body:

To consult the representatives of the travelling public on significant rail related service issues and to disseminate information to those with an interest or stake in the operation of the railway system.†

 

 

Update:

The main issues for this year have of course been around re-tendering and re-timetabling. There has inevitably been much discussion of station improvements and of course the relationship between Southeasternís services and other projects such as Thameslink. The body is a useful 2 way conduit for the exchange of information on the rail industry within Kent and more broadly.†
