Train operator London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has announced that they have started an 8-week public consultation in relation to a proposed significant timetable change from May 2022.
Following investment in the new Azuma trains and the modernisation of the East Coast route by Network Rail, the changes aim to provide more services and reduced journey times on services between London, the north of England and Scotland.
Thirty-nine additional LNER services on weekdays are planned, with up to 6 trains an hour in and out of London King’s Cross.
Journey times are planned to be quicker with London to Edinburgh services operating 15 minutes faster. Train journeys between London and Newcastle could be around 10 minutes faster.
Thousands of extra seats each day would be provided by the extra services.
With extra trains operating to and from York, the building blocks will be in place for regular services to Middlesbrough once work on the local infrastructure has been completed.
The public consultation runs from the 11th of June until the 5th of August.
More details on the proposals can be found on the dedicated LNER website http://www.lner.co.uk/Timetable2022
David Horne, LNER Managing Director, said: “Our new consultation gives us the opportunity to hear the views of our customers and communities across LNER’s route on the proposed improvements we’d like to make from next May, including faster services and more seats between London, York Newcastle and Edinburgh.
“We are confident of the future of long-distance rail travel on the East Coast route and that, by delivering to our customers the full benefit of our new trains and upgraded tracks, we can help level-up and connect the country, protect the environment and support our communities and destinations.”
