With Office of Road and Rail statistics showing an 8.8% decline in train journeys in 2016/17, there is an urgent need to introduce new train journey opportunities. South Western Railway has been consulting on proposals for changes to its train timetable from December 2018. WinACC hopes that the proposed revisions will help to encourage more people to use trains to access Winchester.  However, while there are some welcome additions, WinACC is concerned that the changes could also do more to encourage commuters from Winchester to West London, Surrey and Sussex to travel by train.

WinACC's response is available here.
