    1. This was a coding issue on the website Journey Planner which has now been fixed.

  2. I haven’t the faintest idea what your “New” references above to “Elephant Park” actually mean, but can you tell me why a journey from West London to South-East London directs me to change from tube to Southeastern at Elephant Park? I was expecting Victoria and, indeed, the departure times to St. Mary Cray corresponded. A good job I’m not from out of town and expecting to find the mysterious place where a major railway station should be.

    Can you advise?

    1. This was a coding problem which affected a small number of stations on the website Journey Planner (including Victoria and Streatham Common). Times were correct, but names were mismatched. This was eventually resolved. Elephant Park is a new bus stop which will be brought into use on bus Route 343 shortly
