The new and much delayed changes to the Thameslink rail network in London are about to begin in earnest. This official website outlines what will be happening and when.
One lesser known change is that, from May, there will be a direct train service from parts of Kent to Luton Airport Parkway.
Running every 30 minutes, seven days per week, the service will run from Rainham to Luton town centre.
The Kent and outer London stations to be served are:
Rainham, Gillingham, Chatham, Rochester, Strood, Higham, Gravesend, Northfleet, Swanscombe, Greenhithe, Stone Crossing, Dartford, Slade Green, Abbey Wood, Plumstead, Woolwich Arsenal, Charlton, Westcombe Park, Maze Hill, Greenwich, Deptford and then on to London Bridge and through to Luton
