A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Some Great Northern services will be transferred to Thameslink in 2018 and there is a consultation about services which closes in December. Bowes Park station will be affected with fewer trains during the morning peak time and the Bowes Park Community Association (BPCA) would like to:
a) Draw your attention to the consultation documents so that you have the opportunity to respond – deadline for individual responses: 5pm on Thursday 8 December 2016.
b) Ask you to complete a short survey so that the BPCA can give a group response on behalf of our residents – deadline for your response to our survey: 7pm on Sunday 4 December (because we need to analyse your answers and put forward our response).
Web links to the consultation are below.
Timetable Consultation document, especially p64-67 and the key question is Q78.
Station by station comparison (Bowes Park to Moorgate) - this shows the number of trains per hour at different points during the day.
