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.



As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    Still no staff at the gates either which will ensure that many people continue to travel for free and to stare at people who wear masks despite hating the bloody things.

    Slightly misleading as peak services are running more frequently. For example there are six Sidcup line services per hour to London between 7 and 9 am next week. Ditto the Bexleyheath line. Still not back to pre lockdown services but not quite as sparse as suggested at least in peak hours
