Thameslink Rail Services

Rail users around the borough were startled by recent proposals from Thameslink for significantly reduced services for the borough.

  • For Beckenham Junction, Kent House and Penge East it would mean the end of Thameslink services altogether.
  • For Shortlands and Bromley South it would mean the loss of three peak-hour trains

Commuters are up in arms about the proposals, with strong support from local residents' associations. So many local people depend on good transport links into London and we are already suffering from packed and uncomfortable journeys because of overcrowding.

All eyes are now on Thameslink on their next round of consultation. Sign our petition and we'll let you know when and where there will be any opportunity to respond.

Liberal Democrats have renewed their call for TfL to take control of the whole commuter rail network as soon as possible - the success of London Overground shows what can be achieved through better integration of services. London Mayor Sadiq Khan supports this idea, saying "The only proven way of improving services for passengers is giving control of suburban rail lines to TFL."
