As there will be eight trains per hour, assuming the level crossing closes for three minutes per train, it will be closed for about 24 minutes each hour. This will result in tailbacks in the Hampton Court Way as vehicles wait for the crossing to open.

I'm don't quite see how there would necessarily be a huge increase in parking? Some development investment around the station may be beneficial e.g. bike racks, shelters and improved pedestrian crossings. It'll be a shame to lose the direct line to Waterloo, but many people already jump off and change to the fast service from Surbiton already. The Surbiton fast service may be more frequent and therefore less crowded as a result of the freed capacity. There will only be 4 trains per hour to Victoria (8 includes returns). The wait times while the level crossing is closed could be greatly refined. However, less commuters cutting through the village may be a good thing?

Crossrail 2 will bring with it fairly profound changes to Thames Ditton. Hugely increased parking will probably result in metered parking in a half mile radius of the station at least. There will be overhead pylons and development around stations on the line. The direct service to Waterloo will cease, after more than 150 years. There will be 4 trains per hour to Victoria but none to Waterloo, involving changing onto crowded trains. The level crossing in Summer Road will be closed to traffic for about 50% of the time, and there will be long tailbacks in the Hampton Court Way of traffic waiting to turn left down Summer Road. Could a copy of the Residents' Association's response please be posted ?

Residents are urged to respond - this is the way out of the misery and pain we have endured of years of South West Trains 'service'.
