The Brockenhurst to Lymington Pier branch timetable is revamped on Mondays to Saturdays so as to improve connections at Brockenhurst. Together with the addition of a later train on the Lymington branch (connecting with the trains from London Waterloo at 20.35), passengers will benefit from a much reduced overall journey time from main line stations. The typical off-peak journey time between London Waterloo and Lymington Pier will now be 17 minutes faster than in the previous timetable.

Introduction of a new earlier Saturday morning service from stations west of Poole, allowing more time in London for day-trippers. The 0628 train Poole to Waterloo will start from Wareham at 0611. The 0653 train from Wareham will start at Poole.

Peter Brooks from South West Trains said: “We've been consulting closely with our passengers and stakeholders in various ways, including through the regular ‘Meet the Manager' events at our key stations. "One request that came across loud and clear was for improved connections for Lymington Pier passengers and commuters from Brockenhurst. Our new timetable will provide much improved connections, saving a substantial amount of time at Brockenhurst which, we're sure, will be well received.”
