Govia Thameslink keeps franchise but must pay out £15m over timetable chaos
Department for Transport also caps profit Go-Ahead Group can make from its contract
Govia Thameslink Railway will hold on to Britain’s biggest rail franchise but must spend £15m on passenger improvements after its “unacceptable performance” during the botched timetabling roll-out in May.
GTR will make no profit from the franchise in this financial year, and future profits will be capped until September 2021 when the franchise expires, the Department for Transport (DfT) said
