Thameslink have finally restored a full two-trains per hour service along the Greenwich line after many months of limited services and long frequency gaps.
Services also revert back to their original destination of Luton.
It’s not been the smoothest start, with cancellations in the past couple of hours including the 11:47 and 13:17 from Greenwich to Luton, ensuring that at the very minute this is being written, another 30 minute service gap is seen.
With Thameslink services cut, Southeastern’s reduced service combined to leave 30 minute service intervals a normal occurrence at busy stations such as Greenwich serving a major University campus, shops, jobs and many tourist sites.
The good news coincides with the Northern Line’s branch via London Bridge and Bank reopening after major work to expand congested Bank station.
Further positive developments include the night tube on the Jubilee Line returning, and the biggest of all as Crossrail is finally set to open next week, with the Elizabeth Line providing trains every five minutes from Abbey Wood to Paddington.
