TfL appreciates the frustration of residents of the new development adjacent to the station. Unfortunately, I have no powers to compel Southeastern to fast-track work for which it is responsible.

If responsibility for the National Rail lines to Dartford is devolved to me, as proposed in my Rail Vision, then I would have more powers in this regard.
