Answered By: 
The Mayor

The situation at London Bridge continues to be unacceptable for passengers. As we discussed at Mayor's Questions Time in March (see MQ 2015/0818), TfL has made considerable efforts to support Network Rail and the Train Operating Companies. This has included making available senior expertise and meeting regularly with Network Rail. TfL has also sought to support customers by deploying TfL Ambassadors and additional staff from the Special Requirements Team.

Senior TfL officers would be happy to provide assistance with an independent operations review of Southern rail services at London Bridge if requested by Network Rail.
