South Western Railway Timetable – Consultation on Changes

South Western Railway (SWR) have launched a consultation on proposed changes (from December 2022) to their train timetables.

Passenger numbers are considerably reduced post-covid, and SWR say that their forecasts suggest they will not return to pre-Covid levels for the foreseeable future. They say “The December 2022 timetable is our opportunity to plan for a long-term timetable that will retain the reliability improvements we’ve made, meet the forecast demand and provide value for the taxpayer while balancing other local and national priorities.”

Given this background we were concerned about the possibility of SWR reducing the number of services to and from Hampton Court, but having scrutinised the proposals it appears that the current level of Hampton Court services will be maintained.

You can find out more about the proposals by looking at SWR’s consultation document (PDF, 2MB), which sets out the details of the proposed specification of services, and more information about the consultation. If you have any questions, you can email SWR at .
