London 2012
What follows in an email from Southeastern:

Thank you for changing the way you usually travel during the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The London 2012 Paralympic Games begin on Wednesday 29 August, and to help deliver another successful Games we need you to continue planning ahead.

Southeastern stations and services will be significantly affected by the Paralympics and queues are expected at busier times. Please allow plenty of time for your journey.

Timetable change
Our timetable changes on Wednesday 29 August, you can pick up a pocket timetable from any of our stations or download them from our website.

Additional services
We are also running some extra services which aren’t shown in our pocket timetables –

  • Javelin services
  • Weekday services
  • Sunday 2 September
  • Sunday 9 September

Please check nationalrail.co.uk for the most up-to-date timetable information for all our extra high speed, metro and mainline services.

Stations and services will be busy
On some days several Paralympic Events are taking place at Greenwich Park and so Greenwich Station will be exceptionally busy.

London Bridge, St Pancras International and Stratford International are also expected to be exceptionally busy. At busy times you will need to queue before boarding trains, we will do our best to make sure that queues move quickly.

Plan your journey in advance at GetAheadoftheGames.com and please allow plenty of time for your journey.

Cycle policy
Our cycle policy changes again during the Paralympics but this time it only applies on Javelin services. Only folded compact bicycles (e.g. Bromptons) can be taken on Javelin services between Ashford, Gravesend and St Pancras. Our normal cycle policy applies to our metro and mainline services during the Paralympics.

Don’t chance it
Everyone planning to commute into London or travel during the Paralympic Games is advised to visit GetAheadoftheGames.com for travel advice, alternative transport options and to avoid busy hotspots.
