South Western Railway—the new franchise holders for the South West Trains, including the Waterloo to Basingstoke line—are currently consulting on their proposed new timetable to come into action in December 2018. Unfortunately, their proposals result in Hook and Winchfield (with 1,192,904 entries and exits per year from the station) having a half hourly service with no A.M. peak-period additions.
It is wholly unacceptable that during the peak-period of services arriving at London Waterloo between 0730 and 0845, passengers from Hook and Winchfield will see five services cut by more than half, down to two.
We need to send a signal to South Western Railway that these changes must not happen and that we need our services to London. To do this, I need your support! We only stand a chance of this getting changed if you and others are behind me. If no-one speaks up alongside me then this—very unfortunately—will be the service that we get, so sign the petition below and share it with your friends and neighbours.
