UPDATE: South Western Railway Timetable Consultation - RESULTS

South Western Railway has posted the results of its timetable consultation which had originally cut back stops at Whitton station - crucially in the peak commuting period.


The results appear to have rolled back on this proposal and now suggest that Whitton will now be included on the reading service ensuring three faster peak morning services and three peak evening services. This will be in addition to the half-hourly Windsor services that will also call at Whitton Station.

Cllr Gareth Elliott, Whitton Ward Councillor said:

"I am very happy that South Western Railway has taken on board the howls of protest in Whitton and reinstated the peak time semi-fast services. We are still awaiting further details and will feedback from our meeting with the Managing Director of the rail company."

The final timetable has yet to be published as it is being reviewed by Network Rail. The changes will commence in December 2018.
