Don’t forget – major changes to train services until 4 January

Don’t forget – major changes to train services until 4 January

There are no Southeastern trains to or from London Bridge, Charing Cross, Waterloo East and Cannon Street until Monday 4 January 2016 as work to rebuild London Bridge station continues.

Normal train services will resume early on the morning of 4 January 2016.

A revised timetable is in place throughout this time with trains starting or terminating at London Victoria, Blackfriars or New Cross. Some stations do not have a direct service to London terminals so you may need to change en route. London Victoria and Blackfriars stations are likely to be very busy.

Other work to improve the railway means replacement buses will be used on some routes in Kent and your journey may take longer than usual. Replacement buses will serve stations between Deptford and Westcombe Park, including Greenwich.

Your journey will be affected and you may need to find an alternative route. Tickets will be accepted on advertised alternative routes but are not valid on Southeastern’s High Speed services.

Detailed travel advice, including alternative routes, is available from southeasternrailway.co.uk/christmas.

There are changes to many trains across the UK as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan. For example work at Purley, near Croydon, means significant changes to Southern and Thameslink services and Gatwick Express services are not running. Trains continue to run and you can still travel to and from London and Gatwick, but journeys are running via different routes, will take longer and trains are likely to be busier. To find out more visit nationalrail.co.uk/christmas.

Work is also taking place on the Transport for London network so please check before you travel at tfl.gov.uk/festive
