Southeastern plans Olympic service cuts to Deptford

853 blog has done an admirable job of highlighting Southeastern's relatively unsung plans to cut train services to Deptford and a host of other SE London stations during the Olympics. Under their proposals, Deptford will only be served by two trains per hour, rather than the usual six, which ought to render the station practically unusable, due to overcrowding.

The changes are planned in response to a dramatic shift in usage patterns during the Games, as people travel to events at Greenwich Park, the O2 and Woolwich.

Now, 853 has managed to extract a response from both Lewisham and Greenwich Councils. Both object, not only because of the disruption this will cause to residents but also because it will limit these destinations' ability to attract Olympic visitors.
