southeastern Railway are introducing a revised timetable from Monday 16th November in response to the current phase of the coronavirus pandemic.
This timetable reflects reduced passenger demand and the need for some frontline colleagues who keep our network running, to follow personal NHS advice and self-isolate.
They say that the new timetable is designed to enable them to run a resilient service and help prevent short notice cancellations, as well as help their frontline staff who have been affected by the virus.
A spokesperson said: “Throughout the pandemic, we’ve continually monitored passenger numbers and responded with adjustments to our timetable. The slight reduction in services this winter will also ensure that the number of services better meets changing patterns of demand.
Where necessary, further adjustments will be made to support social distancing on busier routes as part of our safer travel pledge to ensure that if you need to, you can travel with confidence.”
This timetable comes into force due to reduced passenger demand and the need for some staff to follow personal NHS advice and self-isolate.
The timetable can be found here on the southeastern website or on the online journey planner.
On the Bexleyheath and Greenwich routes, additional trains over and above those shown in the planner will be running. These will be available in the timetables soon and in the journey planners from Saturday morning.
