This week we have launched a consultation on our December 2019 timetable proposals.
Quicker journeys on Highspeed services
Our proposed changes will make many journeys on Britain’s only Highspeed rail network even quicker. With quicker services between Ashford and Canterbury West in both directions and quicker services from Ramsgate and Margate.
Quicker journeys on Mainline services
Our proposals will also make journeys on many of our Mainline services quicker, building on the progress we made in shorten journey times in the May timetable revision. Passengers using a number of services to and from London Charing Cross and Victoria are in line to benefit from further reductions in journey time.
Increased boarding time to improve reliability
A limited number of stations will see a small increase in calling time at one or several of their station stops, to accommodate extra time needed for boarding from continuing growth in usage. All passengers will benefit from increased reliability, with an anticipated reduction in delays as a result of this change.
