SWR publish a consultation document for future services.
SWR have released a consultation document on a strategic review of their timetable.
“SWR, Network Rail and the Department for Transport are therefore undertaking a strategic review of our timetable. We are proposing changes which, while resulting in a slight reduction in frequencies, will still deliver capacity at 93% of pre-Covid levels and improve significantly on the current timetable. This is well in excess of current demand and the forecasts set out in this document. We will do this by introducing 90 new Arterio trains, which offer greater capacity and the promise of better reliability, as well as providing additional carriages on many of our existing services. The result will be a more robust train service across the SWR network that meets new travel patterns as we emerge from the pandemic.
Before we commence any detailed timing work, we are keen to consult with key stakeholders across our network: elected representatives,
passenger groups, business organisations and those working in the transport sector.
This is an opportunity to comment on the approach we are taking as part of the strategic review of our timetable. We invite you to read this
consultation document and share your views.”
