High-speed access to the city
here’s still a chance to get your high-speed rail season ticket free.
This month saw the launch of the UK’s first domestic high speed train, High Speed 1, offering commuters a rapid 17-minute journey from Ebbsfleet station to London St Pancras.
To celebrate the launch Crest Nicholson is offering an annual season ticket for the new service, worth £3,292, to all those who reserve at its development The Pier at Ingress Park in Greenhithe during December.
The Pier is just three miles from Ebbsfleet International station, which is only a short eightminute drive away, or 11-minute journey on the new Fastrack bus service, making the entire commute into London less than half an hour – half the time it would take to commute from popular areas such as Twickenham, Uxbridge and Epping.
Residents at The Pier are also able to take advantage of the direct high speed international services which already operate to Paris and Brussels, eliminating the need for travel into London.
The service into central Europe only takes one hour 15 minutes.
Annette Cole, sales and marketing director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “The new domestic High Speed 1 service will improve commuting from this area of Kent into London dramatically and, with The Pier located so close to Ebbsfleet International station, this great offer of a season ticket from Crest Nicholson means that those who reserve in December will be able to take full advantage of the new rail links.”
The Pier is a contemporary collection of luxury apartments.
All homes at The Pier have a stylish modern finish with commodore kitchens, which come complete with a range of integrated stainless steel Bosch appliances including oven, hob, extractor hood and fridge/ freezer.
Bathrooms and en-suites feature Villeroy and Boch sani- taryware and are finished with smart chrome accessories.
Set in 72 acres of mature grounds, Ingress Park has a regenerated riverside walk and heritage trail. Another unique feature is the grass amphitheatre, a focus for community events and summer picnics.
The Pier consists of one and two bedroom apartments, as well as its exclusive penthouse collection.
