The past 2 months have been pretty tough for Seaford commuters and many have had to switch to using buses to get to and from work. But the extra hassle for many is set to come to an end next Monday as many services will be restored.

The new service will herald the return of half-hourly train services for passengers, bringing a sigh of relief for many weary commuters.

One of the most important services that Southern provide between Seaford and Brighton will also be restored in full from next Monday and passengers can now look forward to a half hourly service.

Southern’s passenger services director is quoted as saying:

 

“The replacement of many of the Seaford trains with buses was understandably hard-felt by the local community and we’re sorry for the hassle and inconvenience to everyone the reduced timetable caused.

We are pleased now to be able to restore the town’s full service from Monday next week.

We made a commitment at the start of the month to restore the full timetable of services incrementally and we’re on track to deliver on that promise and in the coming weeks other services will be back too.

We are moving forward with our plans to improve customer services on board our trains which will deliver enhanced benefits to customers.

We already have over 70 staff in the new on-board roles and the reaction from passengers has been excellent.”

However, some services are still affected - These include certain peak hour services between Hastings and Ashford, some Gatwick Express trains and
most services that run directly between Brighton and Southampton.
