Previous Consultation - Summary

A previous consultation was carried out earlier this year (between January and March 2021), seeking your views on the options being considered at that stage by the C2E Partnership.
At the time of the previous consultation, five options were under consideration:
  • Three options involving different ways of extending the Elizabeth line from Abbey Wood to Dartford and/or Northfleet/Ebbsfleet:
    • Option 1 – extending Elizabeth line services at six trains per hour from Abbey Wood to Northfleet on shared tracks with existing National Rail services
    • Option 2 – extending Elizabeth line services to Dartford on segregated tracks at 12 trains per hour, with further extension of 6tph to Northfleet
    • Option 3 – operating new Elizabeth line services to Dartford on segregated tracks, with improvements to Southeastern National Rail services between Dartford and Northfleet
  • One option to improve National Rail services with no change to the Elizabeth line; and
  • One option to provide new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) services with no changes to rail services.
