Commuters in Bexleyheath and Crayford face a ‘nightmare’ commute into work, according to MP David Evennett.

This week, Mr Evennett announced he had met with the secretary of state for transport and Network rail to discuss the ‘misery’ of rail travel from Bexley to London.

“The daily commute is a nightmare and it is getting worse” said the Tory MP.

“Delays, cancellations, signalling problems and all weather conditions have caused misery and and anger among long suffering rail travellers.

“Something radical has to be done and I expressed my constituents’ concerns that the service is sub-standard.”

Network Rail reps John Halsall and Richard Messingham reportedly told Mr Evennet problems needed to be addressed, while transport secretary Chris Grayling was ‘very understanding’.
