There has been a lot of public and political frustration concerning the problems of Southern Railway and the Govia Thameslink Railway, so the British Government decided to commission Chris Gibb, a well-known and respected railway manager, to investigate the causes of the problems with the train service. The report was published on 22 June 2017.
I have carried out an assessment of the Gibb Report and I presented a lecture on my assessment on 3rd October 2017 at the University of Birmingham as one of their series of Prestige Lectures. More information on future lectures is available here:
