SHOEBURY MATTES 11.04.2021

From Chris Atkinson C2C – We will be introducing our new recovery timetable from Monday, following the confirmation by the Prime Minister that lockdown restrictions will be eased next week. This recovery timetable is intended to provide extra capacity where it is needed most, and allow our customers to return with confidence – while still ensuring we do not run empty or under-utilised trains at unnecessary cost to the taxpayer. It will provide 30% more services each weekday, adding around 12,000 more peak-time seats, and nearly 36,000 extra seats across the whole day. The full timetable is published here: https://www.c2c-online.co.uk/media-centre/latest-news/new-recovery-timetable/. Probably the most notable difference to our normal timetable will now be during the off-peak, when we will be running a half-hourly service on all lines. This is because off-peak passenger numbers continue to be low. We intend to operate this timetable for the next few months at least, and as you’d expect, we’ll continue to monitor passenger numbers very closely. Once the data is available, we’ll share it with our customers to provide them with a guide to how busy each individual train is at peak times. Alongside this, all the work our team has been doing over the past year to help keep customers safe continues. We are maintaining our enhanced cleaning regime, offering hand sanitiser at our stations, and heavily promoting the importance of wearing a face covering and on board our trains.

Keep it Clear Programme – Anglian Water & SAVS

Southend Association of Voluntary Services and Anglian Water’s Keep It Clear programme have teamed up again to help create awareness of a new project in the town and surrounding areas to help protect our environment from pollution.

Many tonnes of waste which should not be flushed down loos or poured down sinks are being taken out of around 80km of sewers in Southend and the surrounding area as a result of the project, called Flush to Treatment (F2T).

The project has involved an initial investigation of the condition of the pipes from homes and businesses all the way to the water recycling centre where the used water and sewage is treated. Jetter trucks have been brought in to suck out the waste, some of which is almost as hard as concrete, transport it away from the area, analyse it and dispose of it safely. Read more
