    Routes affected

    Between Redhill and Tonbridge

    Description

    A landslip near the village of Godstone, on the line between Redhill and Tonbridge, has resulted in significant damage to the railway. The line is closed to allow for necessary repairs and is not expected to re-open until the end of March.

    Customer Advice:

    Reconstruction of the damaged embankment between Godstone and Edenbridge is progressing well. Buses will continue to replace trains through these stations until the line reopens.

    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 does this mean for me?

    Please allow plenty of time to reach your destination - 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.

    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 or from Tonbridge.

    Journeys to & from Nutfield:

    • If you're using Nutfield station, a separate minibus service is running between Nutfield station and Redhill, in both directions. This is because the Memorial Hall bus stops (served by full-size buses) are some distance from the station.
    • 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 Nutfield 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 across the whole route between Redhill and Tonbridge (in both directions). The minibus service will also 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, or see the posters at your local station.

    Please note that at Redhill, all buses and minibuses will drop off passengers near the rear entrance to the station on Redstone Hill. Step-free access is available opposite the Toby Carvery restaurant / Redstone Hill 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.

    Alternative route options and alternative car parks:

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

    • 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.

    Disruption between Denmark Hill and Bromley South expected until 23:00

    Train companies affected

    Southeastern, Thameslink

    Routes affected

    between Denmark Hill and Bromley South

    Description

    A speed restriction over defective track between Denmark Hill and Bromley South is causing disruption to journeys between these stations. As a result of this, trains may be diverted via Herne Hill.

    This is expected until 23:00.

    What's happened?

    A track defect has been found near Ravensbourne which means that a speed restriction is currently in place until response staff from Network Rail can make repairs.

    How does this affect my Southeastern journey?

    To reduce delays in the area, services between Victoria and Gillingham, Faversham & Dover will not be able to stop at Denmark Hill. Trains towards London are running normally.

    What do I need to do if I'm travelling with Southeastern?

    If you are travelling from Denmark Hill, you will need to use Thameslink services between Denmark Hill and Bromley South, and change there for alternative trains towards Gillingham, Faversham and Dover.

    You can use alternative services between Victoria and Denmark Hill for travel to Denmark Hill.
