Network Rail and Crossrail 2 have refused to guarantee that Surbiton's current non-stopping trains to Waterloo will continue if Crossrail 2 goes ahead.
Surbiton's current non-stopping trains can be retained, even under the current Crossrail 2 proposals.
Crossrail 2 could potentially improve rail transport from South West London into Central London. Major decisions will be taken in the next few years, although it will not open until 2032 at the earliest.
Crossrail 2 will undoubtedly reduce the travel time for some Surbiton commuters, especially those heading north after arriving at Waterloo.
When questioned by Surbiton's Lib Dem councillors, Network Rail refused to guarantee that Surbiton's current fast, non-stopping trains to Waterloo will continue. This would increase journey times for many.
There is no reason why Surbiton cannot have BOTH new Crossrail 2 routes and keep the fast service to Waterloo.
If you value the fast non-stopping service from Surbiton to Waterloo please sign our petition below and respond to the consultation.

I call on the Government and Mayor of London to guarantee that Surbiton to Waterloo non-stopping services will continue under Crossrail 2.
