More spin on the Railways

It is two years since local Conservatives highlighted the 24.5% increase in annual season ticket prices to Maze Hill. Now Southeastern trains are removing the direct service from London Charing Cross during the evening rush hour – starting 13th Dec from 18.34 until 21.26 there will be no  direct services serving Deptford, Greenwich, Maze Hill or Westcome Park stations. While Southeastern do appear to have increased the number of trains overall, most of them are during the off-peak hours for the Slade Green service. There have also been concerns expressed about changes to peak hour services at Blackheath Station.
