Avanti Trains - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, officials regularly meet Avanti to discuss its performance against service quality regime targets and how it will make improvements for passengers and to the customer experience.

We are extremely disappointed by the tone expressed in the leaked presentation....

Avanti Trains - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The decision to award the contract to First Trenitalia was contingent on the operator continuing to win back the confidence of passengers, but as with other operators, it is a combination of things. Its train crew issues are linked to its continued lack of driver overtime and ongoing industrial action. There are many issues that contribute to this. It is not always the operators’ fault.

Avanti Trains - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I thank the noble Lord for that question. We are committed to reforming the railways, and we are getting on with delivering improvements for passengers, freight customers and the taxpayer now. Rail reform remains a priority for government. Our priority for the next 12 months is delivering the improvements I just mentioned, and we are focused on collaborating with the sector to lay the...

Avanti Trains - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Avanti Trains - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I absolutely agree with the right reverend Prelate. I travel from Wales on the GWR system. Yesterday, we were an hour late arriving at Paddington. The staff are very good, and they keep us informed as to what the issues are. As I have said previously, the issues are not always the operators’ fault; they are very often to do with infrastructure.
