Brighton to London 7.29am train late every day for a year
Railway commuters on one of Britain's busiest morning trains experienced late arrivals every day during the past year, according to the Daily Telegraph.
This disclosure comes hot on the heels of the announcement that commuters, who already pay up to £5,000 a year for a season ticket, will have to cough up an extra 2.5 per cent for their fares.
Southern Rail's managing director David Scorey said: “Our network is very busy and congested. An analogy that I'd use is the M25 at its busiest time. But it does mean that trains are running very, very close together - particularly as they approach London,” he explained.
"We've identified some issues with the 7.29, with the way it interacts with other services, but the timetable and the capacity demand is so intense that some of the options of what we can do are quite limited,” he stressed.
