Govia Executives called to account

Govia executives called to account

At a recent St Albans Council planning and resources meeting, executives from Govia Thameslink Railway were quizzed by local pressure groups regarding its performance.

Larry Heyman, Local Development Manager of Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), said: "There’s no dispute about it. Things have been a very difficult for the past year or so."

As an example of the difficulties, he revealed only 75.1% of trains arrived within five minutes of their scheduled time between 11 December 2016 and January 7 this year. "Nobody would argue that is good. It's not good," he said.

He blamed the poor service partly on the closure of London Bridge station to Thameslink trains from December 2014 until May next year. This has left only one route through South London that has become "a bottle neck". Additionally, the performance of the first batch of 115 new Siemens Class 700 trains had initially been "dire".

New Woodland Walk for Harpenden

New Woodland Walk for Harpenden

A new woodland footpath has been created in a scenic part of Harpenden.

10th Harpenden Scouts, who have their hut near the route, linking Crabtree Fields Car Park with the Lea Valley Walk, came up with the idea of opening up the area to residents and visitors. They have now taken on responsibility for the path's upkeep.

The Scouts group obtained a grant from the Fields in Trust charity for £5,000 and approached the Council for help in completing the project. The Council secured £13,500 from S106 funds, money contributed by property developers to provide local amenities and infrastructure. It contributed a further £1,000 to cover the full cost and managed the works contract.

It runs for about half a kilometre and includes a flight of concrete and wooden steps down an embankment where it joins the Lea Valley Walk. The public was consulted about the scheme with the Scouts helping to deliver leaflets to local residents asking for their views.
