Harlow commuters may be affected by changes to Central Line timetable

Changes to Central Line timetable

TRANSPORT for London (TFL) are carrying out works as part of an investment by TfL to the Central Line Improvement Programme, which has led to a change in time table and may affect your commute.

They are carrying out works to the trains as part of the circa £380 million investment by TfL to the Central Line Improvement Programme. The benefits of this include the replacement of old motors on the trains meaning fewer broken down trains and a more reliable service. For those of you with accessibility needs we’re improving accessibility onboard the trains including more space for wheelchair users, as well as improved audio and visual passenger information. We’re also adding CCTV onboard to make for a safer journey.

Reduction in morning and evening peak services at Debden, Theydon Bois and Epping stations

They are sorry that this much needed Central line work means that they will have to reduce morning and evening peak services at Debden, Theydon Bois and Epping stations. In real terms this means reducing the 11 trains in the peak hour that they currently run from Debden, to 9 trains per hour (and 10 down to 8 at Epping).

Woodford and Hainault Train service

They will be running a train service that will act as a shuttle between Woodford and Hainault. As it does today, the train service will continue to run at a frequency of 3 trains per hour. Currently each week day morning there are three trains which run from Hainault through to Central London, and these will continue as eight car trains under the new timetable. When there are four car trains, all customers will continue to be able to board the train.

Central London services

The new timetable also allows them to make improvements at other times on the busiest section of the line through central London, between Leytonstone and White City and increase services:

Monday to Friday 06:00 – 07:00, from 15 to 18 trains per hour
Monday to Saturday 22:00 – 23:00 from 19 to 24 trains per hour
Sunday 15:15 -19:15 from 22 to 24 trains per hour
