Southeastern 465002 at Lewisham 22 February 2011A Kent MP is meeting London transport bosses over fears that the city may take over the running of some of the county’s train services.

Michael Fallon, who represents Sevenoaks, is concerned that his constituents could end up with a worse and more expensive service.

Boris Johnson believes routes to Dartford and Sevenoaks will improve if they are managed from London.

But Mr Fallon says many passengers cannot hold Mr Johnson to account.

Under the mayor’s plans, responsibility for stations and services in several areas, including Southeastern‘s routes between London and the Kent towns, would come under the remit of his office and Transport for London.
