Meeting notes, briefings etc

Westcombe Park station 2013 - 2The Greenwich Line Users’s Group has produced a Briefing which summarises the changed proposed to services through London Bridge station during its rebuilding between 2015 and 2018, and beyond.

Since our formation in 2012 the Group has held three public meetings. All three meetings were attended by Network Rail and/or Southeastern Railway, allowing passengers to put their concerns directly to the mangers who run our local rail service. Our first public meeting in March 2013 was attended by more than 50 people (Click here for an account of the meeting by Alex Grant, then a local councillor).Greenwich Line Users Group meeting March 2013

We are in regular touch with Southeastern railway, Network Rail and Transport for London. In October 2013 we sent a detailed response to the proposal to extend Southeastern Railway’s franchise from 2015 until 2018. You can read Southeastern’s own briefing note on the proposed franchise extension, and our own response.

In December 2013 we objected strongly to Southeastern’s proposed new 2015 timetable, which could see evening services from London reduced on top of all the other disruption the pipeline. You can read Southeastern’s Timetable consultation document, and our consultation response.

Westcombe Park stn - platform extension works 2013We’ve also attended – and produced reports on – Southeastern’s own Stakeholder Forums in April 2013, October 2013 and May 2014.

In May 2014 we wrote to Southeastern to complain about the confusing – or non-existant – information given to passengers when train services are disrupted by engineering work on Sundays. You can read our letter here.
