Services at Leatherhead and other stations to Waterloo are at risk

Local opposition is growing to the plans of South Western Railways to restrict services on the lines from Mole Valley to London Waterloo. Over 1500 people have signed the on-line petition.

Train frequencies across all routes were reduced during the pandemic; the current proposals would mean that while other suburban routes are restored close to their pre-pandemic levels, the routes to Epsom, Ashtead, Leatherhead, Bookham and Dorking remain at 50% of their pre-pandemic levels.

Apart from a "high-peak" hour in the morning, the services between Dorking & Bookham and Waterloo would each be cut to 1 per hour.

SWR's consultation ends on 18th September, so you need to act quickly if you want our services to be retained. Here's how you can make a difference:

  1. Encourage more people to sign the petition at http://mvld.org.uk/RestoreOurTrains
  2. Contact SWR at dec22consultation@swrailway.com
  3. Write to your MP asking them to campaign for services to be restored; go to https://www.theyworkforyou.com/mp/
