Increase train frequency at Farningham Road

This petition had 233 supporters

Farningham Road station is currently served by 1 train an hour, with 2, sometimes 3, in rush hour. However neighbouring stations (on the same line) Longfield and then Meopham both have more frequent services that go past Farningham Road but don't stop. 

If Farningham Road was served consistently by 2 trains an hour (including late at night and at weekends) and 3 in the rush hours (6-9am, 5-7pm) it would increase the popularity of the station and enable a better commuting journey for villagers. It would also reduce road traffic as currently people often drive to another station (Knockholt, Swanley, Longfield, St Mary Cray, Dartford) so that they can get on a train at a better time or get home faster. Increasing train frequency would reduce pressure on car parks and parking outside other people's houses.

It would be at no extra cost as the trains pass the station anyway - it would just add a couple of minutes to the journey time.
