East Coast Mainline Consultation

Consultation on TransPennine Express services using the East Coast Main Line at the May 2022 timetable change

We invite you to provide a response to the timetable proposed that TransPennine Express operates on the East Coast Main Line at the May 2022 timetable change.  The downloadable files that are part of this consultation are:

As the planned May 2022 timetable is based on the timetable that was in place at December 2019, we have included that timetable for comparison purposes.  Any additional documents that form this consultation will be uploaded to this page.

As the planned timetable affects stations on our core North TransPennine route (Liverpool – Manchester – Leeds – York – Hull – Scarborough – Redcar Central – Newcastle – Edinburgh) we have also included all stations on our North route in the May 2022 timetable for downloading rather than only those on the East Coast Main Line.

TransPennine Express will issue a strategic discussion document later this summer on potential service amendments and improvements for consideration at the May 2023 timetable change and also expects to issue a consultation on service changes required as part of the Manchester Rail Task Force process.

A document that summarises all responses received as part of this consultation will be published during August 2021.  If you would prefer that your response was non-attributed in that report, please let us know.

If you have any queries regarding this consultation or would like a meeting to discuss it further, please contract Graham Meiklejohn, TransPennine Express Regional Development Manager, on graham.k.meiklejohn@tpexpress.co.uk

Please submit your response by:

  • E-mail to: graham.k.meiklejohn@tpexpress.co.uk
  • Post to: Graham Meiklejohn, Regional Development Manager, TransPennine Express, 7th Floor, Bridgewater House, 60 Whitworth Street, Manchester, M1 6LT

The closing date for all consultation responses to be received by is 2359 on 05 August 2021.
