Stop the reduction of peak time central line service from Epping, Theydon Bois and Debden.

Without consultation Transport for London have announced a significant reduction in services at peak times between Epping to Debden.

The changes which will be introduced on 26th January 2020 will see a reduction in morning and evening peak services at Debden, Theydon Bois and Epping by two trains per hour.  

This will have a hugely negative effect on the already stretched tube service running at these stations which are in Epping Forest District. Usage of these stations is set to continue to grow in the coming years with new developments planned in the local area. At peak times thousands already use this service.  

In addition the loop services between Hainault and Woodford will be reduced to a shuttle service with reduced length trains adding to the congestion at Woodford in the mornings.

This decision taken by TFL is UNACCEPTABLE.  We are calling for a review of this decision.
