From 1pm on Christmas Eve, train times will change as improvement work to rebuild London Bridge station continues.
The work at London Bridge will mean major changes to Southeastern services, including no trains at London Bridge, Cannon Street, Charing Cross or Waterloo East from 8pm on Christmas Eve until Sunday, 3 January 2016, this includes three working days. Train services will resume early on the morning of 4 January 2016.
A revised timetable will be in place with trains starting or terminating at Victoria, Blackfriars or New Cross and some stations will not have a direct service to London terminals. Other work to improve the railway means replacement buses will be used across Kent and journeys may take longer than usual.
Please encourage your staff and visitors to plan ahead and find out how their journeys will be affected by checking southeasternrailway.co.uk/christmas.
There will also be changes to many trains across the UK as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan. For example, work at Purley, near Croydon, will mean major changes to Southern and Thameslink services and the Gatwick Express will not be running.
