    Southeastern

    Routes affected

    All Southeastern routes

    Description

    Southeastern, along with the rest of the rail industry, is working to support efforts to delay the spread of coronavirus and to keep services running for essential travel.

    Until further notice, we are running a reduced timetable to ensure that vital train services for key workers can keep running throughout a prolonged coronavirus outbreak. All of our stations will remain open but on some routes passengers may need to change trains to complete their journeys. Wherever possible, we will ensure that early morning and late evening services remain in timetables; so that key workers like nurses, police officers and firefighters can get to work.

    This national change has been made in agreement with the government and around half the usual number of trains will run. Enough capacity will be provided to allow passengers making essential journeys to follow the official guidance on social distancing.

    The reduced service timetable balances the current significantly reduced levels of demand with the need to reduce the number of people required to run the network, which will help to ensure there are enough staff to keep services running over the coming weeks and months.

    **Please follow the government advice, and only travel if your journey is absolutely essential**

    Timetables

    Timetables are available in Online Journey Planners, and a map of the planned service frequency for each line are available here. Online Journey Planners will be updated every Friday morning for the following week.

    Trains at this station may be delayed or cancelled. This is expected to continue until 09:30.

    Customer Advice

    Due to a fault on the 07:28 Stevenage to Moorgate service earlier, some Thameslink and Great Northern trains through Stevenage have been delayed.

    The following routes have been affected:

    - London to Cambridge or Peterborough (mainly northbound - away from London)
    - Stevenage to Moorgate via Hertford North (in both directions)

    We are now able to run trains on all lines in the area, but because of the delays, trains may be revised to call at fewer stations, or may only complete parts of their journeys.

    There will also be a small number of cancellations.

    Replacement buses will run for some journeys. These are being controlled by station staff in the local area.

    Can you tell me more about the incident?

    The driver of the faulty train has been speaking to our fleet engineers to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. This train has now been moved to a location which is more suitable for dealing with the fault.
