A number of train stations have been given £80,000 each to spend on improvements following the timetable chaos of last year.

Stations on Govia Thameslink's (GTR) line including Elstree & Borehamwood, Radlett, St Albans, Harpenden, Potters Bar, Cricklewood, New Barnet, Mill Hill Broadway, Hendon have been allocated tens of thousands of pounds.

Following the disruption faced by Thameslink passengers in May last year when a new timetable was introduced, the Secretary of State for Transport announced GTR would contribute £15m towards a passenger benefit fund.

Hertsmere MP Oliver Dowden is among the MP's who have worked to ensure our stations receive funding.

He said: "The disruption we endured on Thameslink and Great Northern trains last year was unacceptable, and that is why I am pleased nearly £20m has been paid out in compensation since.

"To start making things right, I am pleased to have secured funding for improvements to Radlett, Borehamwood and Potters Bar stations as part of the £15m passenger benefit fund.

"Passengers can suggest what improvements should be made to their local station and I would encourage everyone to do so."
