Deep Concerns raised regarding South Western Railway's Proposed Timetable for Whitton

Responding to changes proposed to the scheduled railway timbale into Whitton, Cllr Gareth Elliott, said:

"I am deeply concerned about the changes that are being proposed by SWR and its impact on Whitton, particularly the suggested changes to peak time semi-fast trains into London Waterloo.

"Whitton is a significant commuter town with more entries and exits than some larger cities. Additionally, Whitton station has recently been upgraded which makes these proposed changes seem rather perverse."

Cllr Elliott added that he is working with Richmond Council to raise this issue urgently with South Western Rail.
