Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

The only one they've not updated to "reflect reality" is the running time between old street and moorgate. I wonder why that could be...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

On the app it says they don't know how engineering work is going to affect the timetable but otherwise seems to be final (though I agree they don't have a clue...!) This was response from GTR (I'm going to reply as they didn't mention the misleading consultation): Thank you for getting in touch rega...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

Currently there are five quick trains in the morning: 624 45mins 645 44mins 713 44mins 746 46 mins 818 45 mins I've emailed and complained about the changes and the misleading consultation and had a very generic response back. I'll post here when I can. I've also emailed Mark Prisk. I accept that th...

Re: New timetable from Hertford North - May 2018

I don't understand how they've binned all the fast trains that were in the last stage of the consultation. All they talk about now is frequency but they don't mention that what was three years ago a 42 minute journey (or 45/46 minutes now) is now 52 minutes...

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

I think a car club would be really good in Hertford. We used to use streetcar in London and we'd have found it quite useful as an occasional second car as opposed to having to hire from somewhere either inconvenient or with not great opening hours. We're also thinking about trying to encourage it in...

Re: Transforming Rail consultation (Hertford North)

I guess it depends when you're travelling. As far as I can see all but one of the existing fastest journeys departing Hertford North between 6am and 8:30am will have increased journey times on the new timetable. This seems to be because Hertford passengers are paying the price of stopping at Harrin...

Transforming Rail consultation (Hertford North)

GTR have started consulting on next year's timetable. I found it by accident as I hadn't noticed anything in the station (though I haven't been looking that hard so there may be posters up). I'd say it's a minor improvement overall from Hertford North but the journey times in the evening are longer ...

Re: Aldi

I like their optimism for the streetscape - lots of people wandering around the A414 like it's a park!

Re: Bircherley Green Redevelopment 2016

The heritage statement contains some quite helpful pictures showing the differences in various views between now and after development. It's also got some entertaining architectural criticism of lots of existing buildings and (unsurprisingly) praise for the new design. The public realm doc is also i...

Hartham Common Cafe

Does anyone know what's going on with the little cafe/coffee shop/ice cream place between the playground and Hartham Leisure Centre? It's been fenced off for a while so just wondering if it's being developed. I couldn't turn up anything from a few searches...
