Govia’s new timetable is “designed to provide a more reliable service” following issues caused by the introduction of the May timetable – and is set to be rolled out next Sunday, July 15.

Chief operating officer of Govia Nick Brown said: “We apologise to passengers for the disruption caused by the introduction of the May timetable due to late approval of these routes.

“The new timetable provides passengers with a more robust and reliable service, gives priority to peak hour trains and seeks to reduce gaps in the service. We encourage passengers affected by disruption to seek compensation.”

This week, Govia announced a special compensation package that will entitle qualifying passengers affected by the disruption to a refund equivalent to the cost of one or four weeks’ travel.
