Does anyone know how the railway 10-year strategy for services in South London (the consultation period for which ends next Friday 24/2/06) affects services through Forest Hill?

I didn't know thre was a strategy or consultation period. If you recall this was one of my questions on a previousl thread. I would be interested to find out more.

I cannot remember where I saw this. I seem to recall that it said something about trains to Victoria being reduced. There were compalints about people being forced off trains at Clapham Junction or onto an already crowded tube line.

This may be the consultation document, I'm not sure if they mean the London Bridge - Victoria loop or another service when they refer to a 'shuttle'.

The newspaper article and consultation relates to the London Bridge - Victoria shuttle via Denmark Hill. Not the service via Forest Hill.
