The Charlton Rail Users Group, which has been dormant for a few years, has come alive again under a new name – Transport for Charlton.
It’s holding its first public meeting on Wednesday 12 October, at 6.30pm at Charlton Liberal Club. Representatives from Southeastern, Transport for London and other local campaign groups will be there.
The new group will be encompassing all forms of transport around the area – one of the things the group is likely to be campaigning for will be a better link to North Greenwich, by diverting the 472 so it serves the stop outside Charlton station.
The ongoing engineering works at London Bridge and Abbey Wood – and the lack of information about weekend closures – is also sure to be on the agenda. (Because Southastern can’t be botherd to announce this stuff, we keep a full diary here, currently up to Christmas.)
One piece of good transport news to note – the Night Tube will come to the Jubilee Line at North Greenwich from Friday night/Saturday morning. Trains will run all night at weekends, every 10 minutes, feeding into half-hourly all-night buses on the 108, 132, 188, 472 and 486.
