Asked Of: 
The Mayor


A constituent has asked to me to raise this question: In your reply to question 2016/2466 you stated that TfL had no plans to change the frequency of the service until after 2018 at the earliest. Does this include the retention of the following weekday PIXC-buster services? Is it the case, as your answer implies, that the new extension to Barking Riverside will only be able to handle 4 trains per hour in each direction and that there will be no opportunity to increase train frequencies at Barking Riverside to 5 trains per hour or higher? Does your reply also mean that 30-minute intervals in late evening services are to be retained?

TfL expects to retain the small number of extra peak-time services (‘PIXC-busters’) that run in addition to the regular four trains per hour timetable.


The service between Barking and Barking Riverside will be limited to four trains per hour, because this is the maximum that can be accommodated alongside the c2c services with which it will share tracks.
