Throughout the programme, different services will be impacted on some weekends and bank holidays. This may include disruption to services on working days around certain bank holidays or weekends.

August bank holiday
Saturday 26 August to Saturday 2 September
There will be significant work over the August 2017 bank holiday and the four working days after.
There will be no Southeastern services at London Bridge, Waterloo East and Charing Cross, which means there will be fewer trains into London and they may be diverted to different London stations.
You will need to change your journey so please keep this in mind when booking holidays and planning ahead.
Read more about what these changes mean for you in our line closures leaflet
More information will be available in June including specific information on how your station is affected.

Christmas and New Year
Saturday 23 December 2017 to Monday 1 January 2018
There will be further major changes happening at Christmas, with no trains at a number of London stations. Passengers on Southeastern, Thameslink and Southern trains will be significantly affected.
Due to the work over this period, your regular journey may not be possible. Please start considering your Plan B in advance.
It might be time to start thinking of other options such as changing the time you travel, finding another route, cycling to work, or working from home. If you are organising this year’s holiday, keep these dates in mind.
When plan A isn’t an option anymore, you’ll need a plan B.
