Let’s not see a repeat of this summer’s rail timetable chaos, warn campaigners

7 December 2018

Campaign for Better Transport warns the rail industry that passengers will not tolerate a repeat of the rail timetable chaos they endured in the summer and lessons must be learned from past mistakes.

This warning comes as the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) plan to introduce its winter timetable this weekend.

Darren Shirley, Chief Executive, Campaign for Better Transport said:

“When the new rail timetable was introduced in the summer passengers experienced chaos across the network, with hundreds of trains being delayed or cancelled. Although the changes to the timetable may be scaled back compared to last May, many passengers will still be affected.

“It is vital the mistakes of last May are not repeated again this winter, passengers have already had a bad year and do not deserve to endure any further problems with their journey.”
