Recent letter from Katherine Cox, Stakeholder Manager at Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR):
Dear Sir Oliver,
Following the rail industry’s decision to postpone the further timetable change planned for December 2018, the rail replacement bus service between Stevenage, Watton-at-Stone and Hertford North will not be introduced until May 2019. This will mean at Stevenage there will be sufficient capacity on the mainline to keep the train service running to and from Watton-at-Stone for a further six months.
I have included a link to the press release here with more information - https://www.raildeliverygroup.com/media-centre/press-releases/2018/469774174-2018-06-28.html
We will continue to work with our industry partners to plan for the bus service and engage with our stakeholders for feedback on the scheme.
