Temporary rail cuts due to London Bridge rebuild now permanent from 2018?

  1. I really hope this is a mistake. A permanent timetable that has double the capacity during off-peak hours is crazy.
    The timetable is marked as consultative – is there somewhere we can give feedback? I can’t see it.
  2. It's laughable. Surely it’ll change by the end of 2018? What was it all for. A station with more space and that’s it? Chris Grayling behind this?
  3. This will be an improvement if journey times are kept. Trains from Greenwich were waiting outside London Bridge for up to 5 minutes all of the time before.
    However, a train every 5-8 minutes at commute times was expected.
    1. I get your point about the waits but they’ve added in timetable padding recently which increased journey times by up to 5 minutes on many services, and those aren’t going in the 2018 draft timetable. So we end up with less trains and no faster journeys due to stretched out timetables after this very expensive scheme is complete.
  4. Surely Southeastern have messed up. This can’t be right. 3 years of disruption and a worse service than before? Grayling and the Tories at work with cuts?

  1. Some of the Conservative losses on the south coast were partly due to disgruntled Southern passengers. In the Southeastern region passengers ans politicians have barely raised a peep. We need to speak out!
