Southeastern Timetable Consultation

Southeastern will be making changes to its timetable effective from 20 May 2018 until 8 December 2018  and we are seeking your feedback.

The timetable change is required as GTR will be introducing additional Thameslink services into Kent, increasing frequency on some routes and replacing some Southeastern services .  The Southeastern timetable therefore needs to be adjusted in order to integrate these services.

For Southeastern passengers there are no major changes and the level of service will be broadly what it is today.

Full details of the changes can be found on our website you can download the  draft timetables for each of our routes.

The main features of our draft timetable are:

  • Cannon Street trains now able to stop at London Bridge.  Charing cross trains diverted to Cannon Street in January 2015 return to their original service pattern.  This includes the peak services from Orpington to Blackfriars via Lewisham which return to Charing Cross.
  • Six trains per hour (the) Monday to Saturday serving New Eltham, Sidcup, Bexley and Crayford
  • Reduced off-peak journey times between Charing Cross, Dartford and Gravesend
  • Extension of  Victoria to Dartford services off peak to Gravesend calling at Greenhithe
  • Six tph at peak times for Deptford, Greenwich, Maze Hill and Westcombe Park
  • Six tph at peak times for West Dulwich, Sydenham Hill, Penge east, Kent House and Beckenham Junction
  • GTR service between Beckenham Junction and Blackfriars to transfer to Southeastern.  Service to be enhanced to five tph in the morning and evening peaks
  • Additional peak peak services calling at Denmark Hill.
  • Additional 698 seats from Ashford to St. Pancras in the morning peak.
  • Two tph Gillingham to Charing cross service operated by Southeastern to be replaced by a two tph Rainham to Luton service via London Bridge, Blackfriars and St. Pancras, operated by GTR.
