    Partial closure between Redhill and Tonbridge until Tuesday 31 March

    Train companies affected

    Southern

    Routes affected

    Between Tonbridge and Redhill

    Description

    A landslip near the village of Godstone, connecting Tonbridge to Redhill, has resulted in significant damage to the railway. The line is temporarily closed to allow for necessary repairs and is expected to re-open by the end of March 2020.

    What does this mean for me?

    Please allow plenty of time to reach your destination, as your journey will take longer than it usually would. You will need to use a replacement bus service or an alternative rail route for either all or part of your journey.

    Full information about how the train service is affected can be found here. Our colleagues over at Network Rail have an explanation together with photographs showing the extent of the damage, and works required here.

    What service is available during the week, Monday to Friday?

    A rail replacement bus service is running between Redhill, Nutfield (Memorial Hall), Godstone and Edenbridge, in place of cancelled trains.

    Connecting trains run between Edenbridge, Penshurst, Leigh and Tonbridge in both directions, except for some very early and very late journeys, when buses are extended to/from Tonbridge.

    • If you're using Nutfield station, a separate minibus service is running between Nutfield station and Redhill, in both directions.
    • If you're travelling from Edenbridge or Godstone and you need Nutfield station, please either travel to Nutfield (Memorial Hall) on the full-size buses, or travel to Redhill and change there for the minibus service to Nutfield Station.
    • If you're travelling from Nutfield towards Godstone or Edenbridge, please either use the bus stops at Nutfield (Memorial Hall), or use the minibus service from the station to Redhill, changing there for the full-size buses towards Godstone and Edenbridge.

    What service is available on weekends, Saturday and Sunday?

    At weekends, a rail replacement bus service is running over the whole route between Redhill and Tonbridge (in both directions). The minibus service will also continue to operate between Nutfield and Redhill stations.

    Where can I board the replacement bus service?

    You can view pick up and drop off locations by clicking here. Alternatively, information is available at your local station or by visiting the designated web-page linked at the start of this message.

    Please note that at Redhill, all buses and minibuses will drop off passengers at the rear entrance to the station on Redstone Hill. Step-free access is available opposite the Toby Carvery restaurant / rear car park entrance, then via the walkway outside Platform 3; or under the large railway bridge and via the main station entrance on Princess Way.

    Can I travel from another station and park my car there instead, too?

    The following alternatives are available to you at no additional cost, regardless of the type of ticket you have:

    • If you're travelling between Edenbridge, Penshurst or Leigh and stations in the London area, you may wish to use Southeastern services between Tonbridge, Hildenborough (near Leigh), London Bridge and London Charing Cross. From London Bridge or London Charing Cross, you can use London Underground services to other London terminals at no additional cost.
    • If you're travelling between Redhill and Tonbridge, you can travel via London Bridge, using Thameslink services from Redhill, and Southeastern services between London Bridge and Tonbridge. The same applies in the opposite direction.
    • If you're travelling between Leigh, Penshurst or Edenbridge and East Croydon, alternative Southern trains on the Uckfield line serve Edenbridge Town, which is about a 10-15 minute walk from Edenbridge station.
    • You may also travel from stations between East Grinstead and Oxted, and from stations between Caterham and Purley.
    • If you hold a valid car parking season ticket, you may park your car at the alternative station you decide to travel from listed above, subject to availability.

    Disruption to Thameslink services between London St Pancras International and St Albans expected until 21:00

    Train companies affected

    Thameslink

    Routes affected

    Between Rainham (Kent) / Orpington and Luton, between Brighton / Gatwick Airport / East Grinstead / Three Bridges and Bedford and also between Sutton (Surrey) and St Albans City

    Description

    This train which had developed a fault earlier today between West Hampstead Thameslink and St Albans has now cleared the line and services are beginning to return to normal between London St Pancras International and St Albans. However, trains may still be cancelled or delayed whilst service recovers. This is expected until 21:00.

    Customer advice:

    Earlier this evening a train developed a fault and came to a stand just outside St Albans, blocking one of the lines. This fault has been fixed and the line is now open. However, some delays and cancellations will still occur whilst we work to recover the train service.

    Services between Sutton and St Albans are still currently suspended. This includes both the routes via Wimbledon, and Mitcham Junction.

    Services between London and Rainham are also affected.

    To help you to complete your journey you may use your ticket on:

    • Southeastern trains, on any reasonable route between London and Rainham (Not High speed services).
    • Southern trains on any reasonable route
    • Tramlink between Wimbledon and East Croydon
    • London Buses between Wimbledon, Sutton and East Croydon
    • London Underground between London Bridge and London Victoria

    Can you tell me more about the incident?

    When a train fault occurs, the driver will contact train technicians and will be guided through a 10 minute repair process. If they are unable to fix the fault, the train will be terminated and taken out of passenger service and returned to the depot for full safety investigation and repairs. This is likely to have an immediate knock on effect, particularly in busy locations across the network, as well as on later services in the day.
