Following the timetable change in May last year, passengers suffered as the industry introduced new services that it was not ready to deliver. Since then, new processes have been introduced within the industry to ensure that timetable changes are deliverable. The industry has concluded that adding these services onto an already busy and complex railway network in December presents a real risk of delay and disruption to thousands of passengers that rely on existing services. Whilst is the right decision, in this context, to delay the introduction, the Department is committed to ensuring that the rail industry delivers a reliable all-day Thameslink service from Maidstone East to London as soon as possible.</p> more like this
