The Government is committed to improving services on the Uckfield Line. We recently completed a £19.2m project to enable longer 10-car trains to operate on the line, giving passengers much-needed extra seating and space. Further improvements will be further assessed in light of available funding, as part of the development of our infrastructure upgrade plans for Control Period 6, covering 2019–2024.
