London gets Javelin

LONDON bound passengers originating in Kent will be able to take advantage of the new and frequent 140mph Javelin service from Dover, Folkstone, Ramsgate and Canterbury from today onwards after an official send-off by Transport Minister Lord Adonis.  The trains will also stop at Stratford International and Ebbsfleet near the Bluewater shopping centre.  A normal day return from typically Dover costs £55 although an off-peak is available at £24.  Average journey time is 1hr 10mins to St Pancras, considerably less than the two-hour traditional journey to Charing Cross. www.southeasternrailway.co.uk
