Next steps to reduce overcrowding at Earlsfield station

Local MP Sadiq Khan has reported on South West Trains' plans to further develop Earlsfield station.

According to his latest blog post, Earlsfield commuters can expect:
  • 10-car trains on some services from 28 July (up from the standard 8-car trains)
  • A ‘turn up and go’ policy at peak times, which means trains don’t wait around if they arrive early, and helps to prevent the trains behind being held up (I just hope this doesn't mean more doors shutting on people trying to board)
  • Additional trains to run every day
  • A review of staffing levels.

But will we see the return of the benches?!
