Southeastern confirms new changes to services on Bexleyheath line

From May 22, Southeastern will be reinstating a direct off-peak service to Charing Cross on the Bexleyheath line, running hourly Monday – Saturday.

Southeastern has said that this is after “listening to customers’ feedback” and using “journey data” following a new timetable introduction in December 2022.

The train company reached an agreement with the Department for Transport to reinstate the service next month.

This service will be “in addition” to other existing timetables which Southeastern have said will provide “over 300” services in operation each weak, directly to and from Charing Cross on the Bexleyheath line.

In a statement on its website, Southeastern wrote: “It’s clear that there’s substantial demand on the Bexleyheath line for direct services that call at Waterloo East on the way to Charing Cross.

“Overall, this decision should benefit passengers on the Bexleyheath line and better balance demand across Southeastern’s Metro services, supporting the West End economy.”
