Would you and Ian Brown care to join me in a visit to Acton mainline station during and after the evening peak, to witness the lack of suitable staffing and appalling state of the facilities? What lobbying efforts is your office undertaking to improve security at the station?

Answer for Acton Mainline Station

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As I explained in my answer to your previous question on this subject (840/2007), Acton Main Line station is the responsibility of Network Rail and is operated by First Great Western, a commercial operator. TfL London Rail has already invested in a number of improvements at the station and further work to improve the lighting is dependent on the provision of funding by First Great Western. However, Ian Brown would be happy to visit the station with you if you believe this would be helpful. It would be still more sensible for you to lobby the Managing Director of First Great Western.
