Mark your calendars for 20th May!
In the UK’s railway industry, rail services that make up National Rail (including TfL-run Overground and TfL Rail) undergo two timetable changes every year, once in December and once in May. During these times, train operating companies, such as South Western Railway and Greater Anglia, may adjust their services depending on changes in passenger levels or new infrastructure. Often, these changes are very minor and go unnoticed by the regular commuter.
However, starting this May until at least the end of 2019, each of these timetable changes is set to come with far-reaching changes that will have a strong impact on rail transport in London, including access. A lot of these changes are centred around the phased openings and expansions of the Thameslink Programme and the Elizabeth Line, although there are also important improvements on Overground, South Western Railway, Southern, Great Northern, and Greater Anglia services. This first post will deal with the Thameslink Programme, as it has not yet been properly introduced, while a second one will cover the main changes in other services. (more…)
