MP highlights more trains and more stops without timetable delays

Today John Baron MP has welcomed the publication of c2c’s proposed new timetable, which will take effect from the end of next year. The public consultation starts today, and will last three months. Commuters now have their opportunity to make their views known. The timetable proposes to increase the frequency of trains during peak hours, and for there to be more regular stops at West Ham and Limehouse – but such stops would not significantly add to travel time into London.

John said,

“c2c have done well to add to the frequency of trains during busy hours, and thereby add capacity. This added frequency should more than compensate for fewer trains starting at Laindon. The more stops at West Ham and Limehouse will also help, given that East London is improving its transport infrastructure.”

“All in all, a job well done. But now is the time for the public to make their views known.”

Julian Drury, Managing Director of c2c Rail Ltd, said,

“This proposed timetable for December 2015 sees big improvements for customers at Basildon and Laindon with more trains at peak times and more trains where seats will be available, plus many more connections at West Ham and Limehouse. We really do want to know what people think about it and are keen to hear from everyone during the consultation.”
