What's happened?

-------------------------

Network Rail have identified a piece of defective track between Lewisham and Hither Green that requires immediate attention.

How does this affect my journey?

Until further notice, 1 line between Lewisham and Hither Green is closed. In order to replace the defective piece of track, engineers will need to close at least 1 other line, for 2 to 3 hours.

Because of the disruption this would cause, the decision has been made to carry the work out after this morning's peak.

The affected line is, and will remain closed until further notice.

Southeastern have had to reduce the amount of trains through the area during the peak hours:

  • Trains from Ramsgate / Dover Priory to London Charing Cross / Cannon Street will be diverted to run to and from London Waterloo
  • Trains from Hastings to London Charing Cross / Cannon Street will be terminated at, and started back from Orpington

 

 

There will be further alterations and cancellations outside of those listed above, and we'll publish these as soon as possible.

Major Engineering Work during the August Bank Holiday Weekend

Bank holiday weekends are a time when, traditionally, a considerable amount of improvement and engineering work is undertaken on Britain's rail network.

Network Rail will be carrying out improvement and essential engineering work on parts of the railway network over the August Bank Holiday. Whilst trains on most routes will run as normal, trains on some routes may be revised or not run.

The following major engineering projects are taking place:

  • No trains to / from London Kings Cross and Moorgate on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August; and reduced service on Monday 26 August
  • Major upgrade work in the Newark area from Saturday 24 to Monday 26 August
  • Reduced service through Milton Keynes Central from Saturday 24 until 12:00 on Monday 26 August

Customers travelling to / from London Kings Cross are advised NOT TO TRAVEL on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August. Instead, you are encouraged travel on the Thursday and Friday before or the Tuesday after the Bank Holiday weekend. As a reduced service is in place on Bank Holiday Monday, trains are expected to be extremely busy.

Customers travelling to / from London Euston are advised that services are expected to be busier than normal. This is due to the reduced capacity of trains running through Milton Keynes, a number of events taking place on the route and also due to the engineering work on other routes increasing the number of customers using the West Coast Main Line.

There will also be improvement projects at numerous other locations. You can find details of all the engineering work that is taking place here.

Other planned service alterations - Industrial Action:

Industrial action is taking place across the bank holiday weekend. The following Train Operating Companies are affected and are operating a revised service:


Why do Network Rail undertake major improvement work on Bank Holidays?

The railway is up to 50% quieter than usual over Bank Holidays, so doing work at this time of year minimises the impact on customers.
