Have your say about impending London Bridge rail chaos

Maze Hill stn 3As many rail passengers will know – but many will not, given the poor publicity so far – train journeys through London Bridge will be severely disrupted between 2015 and 2018 as the station’s rebuilding continues. Please see here and here for previous posts on the proposals.

News has just arrived of four consultation events at stations on  the Greenwich line, this week and next, organised by Network Rail and Southeastern.

Called a “special passenger information campaign”, the events are as follows:

  • Maze Hill: 21-22 October, 7am – 10am and 4pm – 7pm

  • Westcombe Park: 21 – 22 October, 7am – 10am and 4pm – 7pm

  • Charlton: 24 – 25 October, 7am – 10am and 4pm – 7pm

  • Greenwich: 29 – 31 October, 7am – 10am and 4pm – 7pm

The information that is being handed out can be found online here.

The council only got notice of these events last Friday (October 18th), which is only three days before the first of these sessions starts. Not a great deal of notice, to put it mildly, but at least they are now consulting people at local stations, rather than just handing out leaflets at London termini.

I hope local passengers will get a clearer idea of how on earth they will be able to get to work between 2015 and 2018, when many trains will be running through London Bridge without stopping.
