Southeastern Timetable

Several extremely worried parents contacted me over Southeastern's timetable, which showed that from October 1 the 7.42am Dover to Ramsgate service would be cancelled.

Schoolchildren from Dover, Martin Mill, Walmer and Deal rely on this service every day to get to Sir Roger Manwood's or Sandwich Technology School on time.

Parents said the effect of cancelling the service would be disastrous. They were rightly worried about how it could seriously disrupt their child's education. Axing the service would also increase congestion during the busy morning period.

I wrote to Southeastern chief executive David Statham, expressing my serious concern about why the service must be kept.

I later received assurances from Southeastern that the service would indeed be kept.
