Commenting on today's £2m fine for Network Rail, Martin Abrams said: "It's right there are penalties for poor performance, but fines are meaningless if things don't get better for passengers.
"Network Rail and the train operators need to work together to put in place proper plans to deal with the disruption caused by rail improvements so passengers aren't left paying the penalty. Giving TFL more say over local rail services in South London would be one way to help improve passenger experience and avoid problems like those seen at London Bridge station."
