There’s some form of relief for East Sussex rail passengers needing to get to Seaford.
From Monday (18 July), Southern is adding more services to the revised timetable it introduced this week to reduce delays and provide improved capacity on the busiest routes. These include a train to and from Seaford and also to and from Lewes in the evening.
Southern Passenger Service Director Alex Foulds, “Now that the revised timetable has had time to bed in, we have been able to fine tune the deployment of our available train crews to plug timetable gaps and provide additional capacity on some of the routes most affected.
“Although we are running fewer trains, we are providing greater certainty for commuters by concentrating our resources on providing a more reliable and punctual rush hour service. The journey to restoring the railway to a better level of performance still has some way to go but we are encouraged that the new timetable is a first step in that direction.”
