There will be an increase in the number of train seats and services through Hertfordshire in off-peak hours.

Great Northern has announced a new timetable to be introduced on December 14 which it says will create an additional 15,588 seats on off-peak trains.

This will be done by adding more carriages to each train and raising their frequency.

The main routes affected will be the London King’s Cross to Cambridge line that passes through Stevenage, Hitchin, Letchworth, Baldock and Royston.

Great Northern chief operating officer Dyan Crowther said this week: “The December timetable changes will bring thousands of extra seats for our passengers in the off-peak, allowing them to have a more comfortable and enjoyable travel experience with Great Northern.”
