Chris Grayling, the Conservative minister for transport, has called for the train services from Eltham to Charing Cross and Victoria to be cut. Under his Department's proposals trains on the Bexleyheath line will only run to Cannon Street.
They claim that running to trains to several destinations "introduces operational complexity, requiring trains to cross complex and busy junctions. This is a major contributor to delays, and makes it much harder to recover the service when things go wrong.” The Government's answer to this problem is simple: cut the services, ignoring the terrible impact this will have on local commuters and the whole community. This unacceptable.
