9 February (Part 1) - Sweet Chariot?

Bexley 853 reported yesterday on Greenwich transport issues and it’s worth a read even if you are a Bexley resident. It seems that in Greenwich representatives of Crossrail, Network Rail and Southeastern attended their Council’s transport meeting which is in stark contrast to Bexley’s meeting where Network Rail may show up once in a while but the others have absented themselves for more than a year. Bexley’s meetings are approximately quarterly whereas in Greenwich they are once a year.

Interest by the public is similar though, only one person showed up in Greenwich and it’s the same in Bexley.

The 853 report is of general interest because of its news of the Woolwich Ferry and its impending closure.

Affecting Bexley is the suggestion that Southeastern trains coming from Dartford would likely empty at Abbey Wood for Crossrail which means any capacity problem closer to London would disappear. We shall see.

The Crossrail rep. said that Abbey Wood will have a train every four minutes instead of five for its first six months of operation, if of course it opens on time. RAIL NEWS is suggesting it might not.

Meanwhile the Nuxley Navigator seems not to have started operation yet, at least that is what the young fellow who gave me this card on Wednesday said.
