star this property answer text <p>Passenger train operators must have a licence granted by the Office of Rail and Road (ORR). The licence requires the operator to establish and comply with a complaints handling procedure (CHP) setting out how they handle complaints from customers. The CHP, which has to be approved by the ORR, should include that passengers who are unhappy with the outcome of their complaint can contact Transport Focus (TF) or where appropriate, London TravelWatch (LTW), who may be able to pursue the complaint on their behalf.</p><p> </p><p>ORR reserves the right to carry out detailed annual reviews of licence holders where there is evidence of systemic issues not being addressed or a significant decrease in service performance. They will continue to monitor individual CHPs for compliance and effectiveness using evidence including information on the number, type and underlying cause of complaints and feedback from TF and LTW.</p><p> </p><p>My honourable Friend the Rail Minister (Paul Maynard) has also been leading discussions with industry and consumer bodies about introducing a rail ombudsman that would improve the passenger voice in rail and provide independent binding resolution of complaints. He anticipates being in a position to provide a further update by the end of the summer when this work has been further developed.</p>

Before ETCS is fitted on all three networks, trains using the tunnel will have to have more than one on board signalling systems (ie a Tunnel compatible one and an ETCS one) and there will be a handover between the systems as they move from one piece of infrastructure to another. The UK Government is considering what specific provisions need to be part of any exit agreement to ensure continuity of services using the tunnel.</p> more like this
