Southern Railway to reinstate Tonbridge, Redhill and Reigate services

Southern Railway will reinstate all its Tonbridge, Redhill and Reigate services next week.

The troubled provider today announced it would restore the full timetable from Tonbridge and Reigate to Redhill and London Victoria/London Bridge on Monday. This will also see the full service between Redhill and London restored.

The change is in addition to the inner London and West London Line services reinstated last Monday. More services will be added back in the coming weeks.

Alex Foulds, Southern’s passenger services director, said: “I want to apologise again to our passengers who have suffered ever since the RMT began their unnecessary action against our plans to improve customer service on board our trains. The temporary revised weekday timetable has been delivering a more consistent, reliable service. Now, as promised, we are steadily reintroducing trains and will continue to do so until the entire timetable is back in place.”

RMT hit back at the provider, slamming them as "pitiful" and "profiteering."

A spokesman said: "These are pitiful changes to the Southern timetable and the fact that passengers are ‎still paying through the nose for a vastly reduced service is solely due to the gross managerial incompetence and profiteering of this basket-case rail operator.

"Yet again Southern/GTR are blaming front line staff for their own systemic failures while the parent company is sitting on profits of £100 million. The fact that they are still unable to run the service the taxpayer is paying for, and the fact that the Government are letting them get away with it, is a national disgrace. "

Train times on these routes will revert to the original timetable. For details, visit journey planner at www.nationalrail.co.uk.
