Extra trains during Paralympic games

SOUTHEASTERN has announced additional train services will operate for the Paralympics following an increase in event ticket sales for the Games.

The total extra trains account for around one million additional seats for spectators and regular passengers travelling to and from London during the Games period.

Almost 2.5 million tickets have been sold for the London Paralympics, which are forecast to be the first complete sell-out in the event’s history.

With around 20 percent more people travelling, services are expected to again be very busy and at some locations customers can expect to queue before boarding trains.

Passengers are advised to check with National Rail Enquiries for the most up-to-date timetable information for all extra high speed, metro and mainline services.

Southeastern services are expected to be extra busy over the two week period.

There will be an estimated 100,000 extra journeys each weekday on all Southeastern services during the Games, which start on Wednesday.
