2 November - Abbey Wood to connect to Heathrow and Luton but no way to Lewisham. Mad

The Transport User’s Committee is a meeting I like to go to but it often conflicts with my responsibilities with the Abbey Wood Traders’ Association which it did again last week.

I read through the Agenda so that you don’t have to and the only thing that caught my eye concerned the proposed Rainham to Luton train service. It might seem like an interesting idea but not when one gets down to the detail. As a result there will no longer be any service to Waterloo East and Charing Cross or even to Blackheath and Lewisham.

So holiday makers heading to St. Pancras for Eurostar or Luton Airport once a year will be given preference over the daily, for some, trek to Lewisham and from there perhaps the connection to King’s Hospital at Denmark Hill.

Absolutely crazy. Fortunately the Transport Committee thinks so too and recommends that Bexley Council objects.

So should you. Click image to do so.
