New journey opportunities
Since 2018, Thameslink services have offered new journey opportunities on an expanded network and better connections to airports. Passengers from Cambridge and Peterborough now have direct access to Gatwick for the first time. Passengers from Sussex, Surrey and Kent can access the Great Northern and East Coast routes, and international rail services form St Pancras International. These better rail connections will ensure that London and the South East continue to generate growth and opportunities in the decades ahead.
