Market Study – London and South East


The London and South East passenger market study was one of four Market Study documents produced as part of the Long Term Planning Process. Together, the long distance and regional urban passenger market studies and the freight market study set out how passenger and freight demand is expected to change in each of these markets in Britain over the next 30 years.

The London and South East market study looked at how the market in the area within (broadly) a 80-mile radius of London has developed in recent years and considers the benefits to the economy, the environment and the quality of life for communities and individuals within the study area that can be achieved by further improving and developing the rail network. Key deliverables of the study were the ‘conditional outputs’ for the London and South East sector in terms of frequency, journey time and/or passenger capacity on key flows.

The London and South East market study was consulted upon, responses considered, and then published as a final version.
