How South East Trains are Affected by the Timetable Change

A new timetable across the railway industry has come into effect today, bringing changes to services in the south east. Southeastern, Govia Thameslink Railway (Southern and Thameslink), and South Western Railway will all see adjustments to their schedules.

Southeastern has added more services across its network, with trains from various stations to London being spread out more evenly during peak times. Additional trains will run to create more space, and journey times to Victoria will be quicker for some routes. Late evening services have been increased, and more services will run on weekends.

Govia Thameslink Railway (Southern) has made significant changes to its West Coastway timetable, aiming to improve reliability and provide faster regional journeys. The new Monday-Saturday timetable includes half-hourly services between Brighton and Southampton Central, an hourly service between Brighton and Portsmouth & Southsea, and more.

South Western Railway (SWR) has also made significant changes to key routes, particularly affecting services from Portsmouth to London Waterloo via Woking and services from Portsmouth to Southampton. Minor changes have been implemented across the network for service improvements.

Overall, these timetable changes aim to enhance the commuting experience for passengers in the south east. Stay updated with BBC Kent for more information.
