Govia Thameslink uses 30-day disinfectant

TRAINS and stations on Govia Thameslink Railway are being treated with a new disinfectant which should give protection from Covid-19 for up to 30 days. Staff are using an app which will tell them when an individual vehicle was last cleaned, while GTR has also ordered 1,000 no-touch hand sanitisers for staff and passengers, which are being distributed to stations. Engineering director Steve Lammin said: ‘Since the outbreak of this pandemic we have been doing all we can to protect our passengers and staff by ensuring our trains, and stations have enhanced cleaning regimes, and a switch in focus to high-touch areas and the increased use of anti-viral agents. We are now using a product that will kill Coronavirus for up to 30 days and we are applying this to surfaces across our network on a 21-day cycle. We want to do everything possible to work with passengers and staff to keep them safe and this will further protect everyone who is working so hard for this country.’
