Southeastern to double trains at certain times on Woolwich line

New timetables are in force from Monday 6 July as more people head back to work and passenger numbers pick up.

Services operated by Southeastern from Charlton to Dartford via Woolwich will increase during the day from 2 to 4 trains per hour. Thameslink operate another two in addition.

There is no change in frequency to the Sidcup line which remains at four per hour. Though it seems that before all trains stopped at lewisham but that is now down to two per hour as it was before timetable cuts.

Neither is there a change on the Bexleyheath line.

The Hayes link increases from 2 to 4 trains per hour.

This will restore services to 80 per cent of normal levels across the network.
