“We’re building on the success of May’s timetable change by delivering further improvements for passengers and achieving the most benefits to the greatest number of people. Where possible, we’ve shortened some journeys and re-allocated trains to ensure better spread across our network – but we’ve had to make some journeys slightly longer in the London area to ensure everyone can use the railway as safely as possible.
“As always, our message to passengers ahead of the new timetable is check before you travel, as your train times may change.”
