Battle of waterloo_ rail firm bidding to start new, cheaper southampton-london service (from bournemouth echo)

In what is being seen as the start of a rail war train company Alliance Rail Holdings have revealed plans to launch a service with cheaper fares and more seats for passengers.

The firm has begun a consultation to start a route by the end of next year which would call Eastleigh, Winchester, Basingstoke and Hook, before heading for London Waterloo.

Alliance is bidding for a “open access’ service which means it would operate outside of the main franchise for the area which is currently held by South West Trains.

Managing Director of Alliance Ian Yeowart said: “Nowhere south of the river has seen any competitive entry into the network at all since privatisation.


“We also hope to increase the quality of the train itself, so better quality seating, maybe adding back some of the things which used to be provided years ago like onboard catering, allowing people with season tickets to book seats on a specific train.

“We are now setting up some meetings with a number of user groups and rail groups to discuss the things they would like to see – we think we can deliver to give passengers some choice.”

When asked about how the company would provide cheaper tickets than its competitors, Mr Yeowart said: “Where there is competition on the networks, operators against operators, the actual price of tickets is cheaper.

Co-ordinator of South Hampshire Rail Users Group Dennis Fryer which represents passenger views welcomed the plan. Meaning of tendering process He said: “In principle, it would be great.

“Privatisation was supposed to be all about competition and getting a better deal for passengers, but when it comes to South West Trains, people have just been paying more and more.”

ORR spokesperson Brian Clarke said: “We have not yet received an application from Alliance – at this stage its up to the industry to consult within the industry.”

South West Trains declined to comment, because the potential start date of the new service was beyond the end of the current franchise which it is operating.

Performance data from South West Trains revealed that its average performance in the past year to October 15 on its mainline service had been on time 86.8% of the time whilst 99.4% of the time the train service was operated as per the timetable.
