Changes to Uckfield train table for commuters

IF YOU’RE AN Uckfield commuter, then make sure you turn up at the station a little earlier this Autumn.

Some trains are leaving the station a little earlier so they can get to their destinations on time. One of the reasons is the issue of ‘the wrong sort of leaves’ which can lie on tracks.

An “autumn leaf fall timetable” will operate from October 3 to December 9.

Southern’s Development Director, Alex Foulds said: “Autumn poses a risk to a very small number of our rural routes which can be vulnerable to poor rail conditions due to leaf fall. We are making the changes to reduce this risk by starting some services a little earlier than usual.

“We know how important it is for our passengers to have the confidence that they will arrive at work on time, and by starting these trains a little earlier, we should be able to achieve this.” The changes aee as follows: The 07:08 Uckfield to London Bridge service starts three minutes earlier at Uckfield, Buxted, Crowborough and Eridge and two minutes earlier at Edenbridge Town, Hurst Green and Oxted. Times from East Croydon remain the same.

The 07:34 Uckfield to London Bridge service starts three minutes earlier at Uckfield, Buxted, Crowborough, Eridge and Ashurst with no change at Cowden, Hever, Edenbridge Town, Hurst Green and Oxted.

The 08:04 Uckfield to London Bridge service starts three minutes earlier at Uckfield, Buxted, Crowborough, Eridge, Ashurst, Cowden, Hever and Edenbridge Town but there is no change at Hurst Green and Oxted.
