英國最繁忙和最安靜的火車站曝光

倫敦滑鐵盧再次成為英國最繁忙的火車站,而在去年被斯特拉特福(倫敦)從榜首位置擠掉。

不過,滑鐵盧的乘客人數為4140萬,仍不到其關閉前數字的一半。

前10名中有8個是倫敦站,伯明翰新街和曼徹斯特皮卡迪利站分別排在第八和第十。

東米德蘭茲鐵路公司每天從無人車站安排 "最多兩個 "服務,該車站只記錄了40個乘客入口。

英國鐵路和公路辦公室(ORR)對英國2570個車站中的每個車站的使用率進行了估計。

1848年開業的滑鐵盧站在2020-2021年取代斯特拉特福(倫敦)站之前的14年裡一直是英國最繁忙的車站。

滑鐵盧是倫敦最後一個提供蒸汽動力服務的終點站--1967年,最後一列蒸汽火車開往伯恩茅斯。

它也是倫敦殯儀館公司的總站,在棺材被運往薩里的布魯克伍德公墓埋葬之前,為送葬者提供住宿並舉行葬禮。

英國首相溫斯頓-丘吉爾爵士的最後旅程是從滑鐵盧車站開始的。他的棺材被裝入一輛名為溫斯頓-丘吉爾的英倫戰役級火車頭,然後被運往布倫海姆宮安葬。

2021年4月1日至2022年3月31日期間,英國有24個車站的進出站人數超過1000萬,而此前12個月只有5個車站。在2019-20年的統計中,有43個這樣的車站。

在蘇格蘭,格拉斯哥中央車站仍然是使用最多的車站,有1530萬次進出,而愛丁堡則以1360萬次名列第二。

在威爾士,卡迪夫中央車站仍然是最近一年最繁忙的車站,有750萬人次。紐波特位居第二。

在最近一年,有6個開放的車站,進出站人數少於100人。

ORR的Feras Alshaker說,看到乘客在大流行病期間經歷了行業的困難時期後重新開始乘坐鐵路旅行是 "令人振奮的"。


London Waterloo is once again the busiest railway station in Britain, after being knocked from the top spot last year by Stratford (London).

Waterloo's passenger numbers though, at 41.4 million, are still less than half of its pre-lockdown figures.

Eight of the top 10 are London stations, with Birmingham New Street and Manchester Piccadilly coming in at eighth and 10th respectively.

East Midlands Railway schedules "up to two" services a day from the unmanned station, which recorded just 40 passenger entrances.

The Office of Rail and Road (ORR) estimates station usage for each of the 2,570 stations in Britain.

Waterloo, which opened in 1848, was the busiest British station for 14 years until Stratford (London) took its place for 2020-2021.

Waterloo was the last London terminus to provide steam-powered services - the final steam train went to Bournemouth in 1967.

It also provided the terminus of the London Necropolis Company, accommodating mourners and holding funeral services before coffins were transported for burial at Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey.

The final journey of British prime minister Sir Winston Churchill started at Waterloo station. His coffin was loaded a Battle-of-Britain-Class locomotive named Winston Churchill before travelling to Blenheim Palace for burial.

Between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022 there were 24 stations in Great Britain with more than 10 million entries and exits, compared to just five stations over the previous 12 months. There were 43 such stations in the 2019-20 tally.

In Scotland, Glasgow Central remained the most-used station with 15.3 million entries and exits, while Edinburgh was second with 13.6 million.

In Wales, Cardiff Central remained the busiest station in the latest year with 7.5 million. Newport was second.

There were six open stations with less than 100 entries and exits in the latest year:

Feras Alshaker from the ORR said it was "heartening" to see passengers returning to travelling by rail following a difficult period for the industry during the pandemic.
