New LNER Timetable Consultation - Perthshire Chamber of Commerce

New LNER Timetable Consultation

May 2022 timetable consultation continues

Significant changes are planned for our timetable from May 2022, including more and faster services between Scotland, the North of England, the East Midlands and London – and our consultation continues to seek views on these proposals.

We are hosting a series of online briefing sessions on the proposed changes, sharing details, answering questions and receiving feedback. During these sessions, we are being joined by representatives from Network Rail and the other train operators on the route. Please see the list of online sessions and how to register below. 

Our timetable proposals build on over a decade of planning and investment including in our new Azuma fleet and Network Rail's modernisation of the East Coast's tracks. They will see improved rail journeys to support the economies and communities along our route, providing more services, more seats and reduced journey times between our key destinations – levelling up the country, strengthening Union connectivity and decarbonising by providing an even more sustainable alternative to air and road. 

The timetable has been developed by Network Rail with all train and freight operators on the East Coast Main Line. It has involved balancing long-distance, high-speed, regional and commuter/local services alongside the needs of the rail freight sector, and we have worked together to balance improved journeys with better reliability while managing several remaining capacity constraints on this busy route.

Our consultation runs until 5 August 2021 and you can provide your views by either responding to the short online survey, or downloading, completing and returning a form – which can be found here.

To read more, please visit www.lner.co.uk/Timetable2022, where you can find our consultation document, the proposed timetable itself and a summary of changes proposed by the other East Coast Main Line train operators too. In the FAQs page, you will also find links to more details on the proposals of other train operators.
