North East Herts MP Sir Oliver Heald has welcomed news that Govia are considering making improvements to the proposed timetable for Royston. In a letter, Katherine Cox of Govia has told Sir Oliver that there may be a possibility of starting one Thameslink service an hour in the mornings from Royston and that fast northbound trains that were no longer going to stop at Royston after 19.12 will be reinstated.
Commenting, Sir Oliver said “I know commuters will be pleased to see that there has been some movement from Govia to try to meet the concerns of Royston commuters. Of course, we await the final timetable announcement in due course. I will continue to press the case for commuters in the constituency.”
