New service will run to Waterloo East and Charing Cross

Orpington is to get a fast rush-hour train to Waterloo East and Charing Cross.

The train will leave at 8.56am and will start on Monday.

MP Jo Johnson, who has long campaigned for better train services to the town, said: “This is brilliant news. I’m glad that Southeastern has been listening to us on this.

“Of course, this is just the start of the change that we need to see, and I will continue to push for similar fast services earlier in the morning when they are really needed, and also a better fast service back to Orpington in the evening.”

Several trains between Orpington and London will also go up from eight to ten cars.
