Govia Timetable Consultation – Just A Few Days Left To Comment

A local resident at the Transport meeting on Monday night has been looking at the Govia/Southern consultation, the details of which are explained on the blog posting below.

As we only have only until 8 December to reply, he has downloaded two key documents:

*       The long explanatory pdf which explains why the questions have been set up in the manner shown….That is Govia and Southern want you to agree to their “very reasonable???” conclusions.


*       The graphs showing travel from Norbury and other local stations. ‘There does seem to be an odd collection of destinations, which vary from the start station. More importantly travel to East and West Croydon stations is not differentiated.’


Unfortunately the questionnaire does not download and still has to be accessed through the web at

‘It seem likely that the main aim is to reduce the number of trains running on the Southern network, as this will reduce penalties for the train companies. There is also an issue brought about by the plans for more trains to run right through London to Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. To avoid disruption on the Northern Routes, this will need better time keeping in our area.’
