Rail network London Midland has announced it will carry out a restructuring of its business, resulting in 150 redundancies.
London Midlands, owned by Govia, the partnership between the Go-Ahead Group and Keolis, has faced rising costs and in a statement said upcoming redundancies will “focus on head office and support staff.”
Patrick Verwer, managing director at London Midland, said: “The service to our passengers will not be affected by the changes. We have made good progress over the last year.
“Our train service is much improved and higher customer satisfaction scores tell us passengers can see the difference.
“Like every other business however, we have to keep our costs under control. Our proposal has been designed to increase efficiency and reduce our costs while continuing to improve trains and station services.”
The company has also been hit by strike action and driver shortages so far during 2014, leading to cancelled or delayed services.
