Our objective is to be able to travel from Camberley to Waterloo in 50 minutes through a direct rail link between Camberley and Woking. Camberley gets a bad deal as it currently takes around 75 minutes compared to 48 minutes from Aldershot.

First MTR propose improved rail journey times from Camberley, Bagshot and Frimley
Here is some good news at long last! Following a meeting with Mark Wilkins, Stakeholder lead for First MTR, on 26th May this statement has been agreed about improved rail journey times.
First MTR won the new franchise for what they will be calling South Western Railway, formerly South West Trains. The new franchise will commence on the 20th August 2017.
They have listened to our demands and they will be providing faster rail services from Camberley, Frimley and Bagshot via better connection times at Ash Vale (typically 5 minutes) when the new timetable is implemented in December 2018, subject to a public consultation that will take place in Autumn 2017.
This will mean journey times from Camberley to Waterloo of 56 minutes in peak time and 61 minutes off peak. This is a significant improvement on current journey times of 72 to 75 minutes.For more information click here
