Expect busy trains this week

A train company is warning of extra passengers in the capital as the end of the school holidays clashes with the Paralympics

Passengers warned about busy train services

Passengers are being warned that services will be busier this week with the end of summer holidays coinciding with the Paralympic Games.

High speed services will be most affected with the Javelin® service conveying Paralympic spectators to the Olympic Park

Metro and mainline services will also be busier than usual with spectators travelling to Paralympic venues and live sites in and around London.

A Southeastern spokesman said: “With many schools and commuters returning from summer holidays our services will be much busier than normal.

We’re running extra trains and longer trains where we can, but at the busiest times there may be occasions when customers may need to queue before boarding a train.

We advise passengers to adjust journeys wherever possible to avoid the busiest periods and allow extra time to travel.”
