Consultation: Future of rail services into London

 

Direct trains from Addlestone and Chertsey to central London could be a thing of the past as operator South Western Railways launches its new timetable consultation.

 

The franchise holder, which took over from South West Trains this year, is looking to stop direct trains from Addlestone and Chertsey into London Waterloo and vice versa.

 

Direct trains from these stations are currently offered as part of the Weybridge-London Waterloo service.  However, under the new proposals, passengers from Addlestone and Chertsey who want to travel to London Waterloo will first need to get on a half-hourly train shuttle service to Virginia Water or Weybridge before connecting to a London Waterloo service.

 

The timetabling of the proposed shuttle has yet to be confirmed.

 

The hourly Sunday service from Staines to Weybridge would be maintained, operating to/from Woking in the morning as it does now, the consultation document said.

 

The new timetable is intended to come into effect on Sunday, 9 December, 2018

 

Runnymede residents can have their say on the plans until Friday, 22 December 2017

 

If you would like to respond to the consultation, or have any issues that need to be addressed, please respond via email to timetable.feedback@swrailway.com

 

Ensure all comments are with South Western Railways no later than Friday, 22 December 2017.

 

A special consultation event is also being held on Monday, 27 November, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at Egham railway station.

 

Other key points to note:

 

Currently the first train from Weybridge into the capital via Staines ( serving Addlestone, Chertsey, Virginia Water and Egham) leaves at 6.32am. This would also end under the new plans.

 

SWR hopes to reintroduce an all-day semi-fast service, Mondays to Saturdays on the Hounslow Loop, calling only at Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Putney, Brentford and Hounslow. This would maintain connectivity from the Hounslow Loop to Feltham and Staines while also improving journey times, from Hounslow and Brentford to London, by up to seven minutes.

 

Rail users on that route would also benefit from earlier and later trains and an increase in off-peak Windsor Lines services from 12 trains per hour to 16.
