Andy Burnham’s plans to investigate Northern will not solve problems, says rail users chair | The Bolton News

THE CHAIR of a rail organisation has criticised Andy Burnham over plans to investigate train company Northern.

Jeff Davies, of the Bolton Rail Users Group, said the operator is not responsible for the recent spate of delays and cancellations, which have resulted from staff shortages because of Network Rail’s overrunning work in Blackpool.

It comes in response to the Greater Manchester mayor’s call for Transport for the North (TfN) chairman John Cridland to assess the company on failures to meet its targets.

However, Mr Davies said investigating the company would not deal with the root of the problems. Andy Burnham’s plans to investigate Northern will not solve problems, says rail users chair | The Bolton News
