    Southern

    Routes affected

    Between Ashford International / Hastings / Ore / Eastbourne and Brighton / Haywards Heath / London Victoria / London Bridge

    Description

    A person has been hit by a train between Eastbourne and Lewes, resulting in all lines being closed between these stations.

    Trains are unable to run between Lewes and Eastbourne. Rail replacement buses are running between Eastbourne and Brighton, stopping all stations in between, and also between Lewes and Eastbourne.

    Seaford services are currently unaffected by this incident. 

    There is no estimate as to when the line will reopen, but when it does we expect journeys to be disrupted until approximately 12:00.

    Customer Advice:
    Unfortunately this morning a person has been hit by a train between Eastbourne and Lewes. Emergency services are currently dealing with the situation, however this has had a large impact on Southern services this morning.

    Services are currently unable to run between Eastbourne and Lewes in both directions. This is due to damage of the tracks as a result of the incident.

    Network Rail, who own and maintain the tracks, are attending the situation and are on site at the moment. They have been required to wait for the affected train to move from the area before work can begin. The affected train has now moved, allowing a thorough assessment to now take place. Once the issues have been rectified, Southern will be working hard to restore the service to its usual timetable.

    Alternative Travel Options:
    Passengers for London are advised to travel to Brighton to make onward journeys. 

    To help you complete your journey, tickets are being accepted on the following services:

    • Southeastern services between Hastings and London (excluding High Speed)
    • Brighton & Hove Buses between Brighton and Lewes and Brighton and Eastbourne.

    Train companies affected

    Southeastern

    Routes affected

    All routes via London Bridge

    Description

    As part of the government sponsored Thameslink Programme, Network Rail is rebuilding London Bridge mainline rail station to provide more space, improved connections to more destinations and more reliable services. The rail and tube station will remain open during the work.

    Long term changes

    Significant work affecting London stations will take place over Christmas and New Year 2017/8.

    Trains will be severely impacted over this time and you will need to change your journey so we ask you to keep this in mind when booking holidays and planning ahead.

    Information about changes over the Christmas and New Year period will be made available later in September.

    Further information


    Travelling at the weekend

    Throughout the programme, different services will be impacted on some weekends and bank holidays, for the latest information visit Journey Planner to see the full impact on your journey.

    During periods of time when London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street are closed, you'll be able to use your ticket on selective alternative routes to complete your journey at no extra charge. For full details visit Southeastern. Please note the ticket acceptance detailed for weekend engineering work may differ from the Monday to Friday Thameslink Programme ticket acceptance outlined below.

    Longer term changes

    Thameslink services which run through central London will not call at London Bridge, however there will be a limited service between London Bridge and Brighton.

    Southeastern

    Until January 2018

    Most trains to and from London Charing Cross are able to stop at London Bridge again. As a result, there are some changes to ticket acceptance arrangements from Monday 4 September.

    Trains to and from London Cannon Street will no longer be able to stop at London Bridge.

    During this time, it is recommended that you consider changing your normal journey to work as the number of trains running will be reduced and are likely to be very busy.

    Alternative routes and travel advice

    The impact on your journey will depend on the particular services that you currently use to get to and from London Bridge and what alternatives exist. Travel advice is as detailed below:

    • Change the train you catch from your home station to go direct to your national rail destination. For example switching from a London Charing Cross service to a London Cannon Street service. This may involve shifting the time that you travel, but in many cases only by a few minutes
    • If getting a different train from home is not possible, we advise you to change trains en route outside London, for example at Lewisham, Orpington, Sevenoaks or Hither Green, to get to your final destination

     

    If you are unable to complete your journey by interchanging on National Rail services outside London, you may need to use TfL services. If you have a Travelcard you may use any route covered by your ticket. Otherwise, there are specific alternative routes. For full details click here.

    • Between London Cannon Street and Charing Cross/Embankment on the District/Circle lines and on bus 15 between Cannon Street and Charing Cross
    • Between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge on the Northern line and on buses 35, 40, 133 and 343 between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge

    • Between Cannon Street and London Bridge on District/Circle/Northern lines
    • Between Cannon Street and London Bridge on bus services 17 and 521
    • Greenwich line passengers can use the DLR between Greenwich and Lewisham, changing there for a Southeastern service to London Bridge, or can use Southeastern services via Charlton

    Thameslink passengers from the south of London (with a 'Thameslink only' ticket), whose final destination is currently London Bridge should change at Elephant & Castle or London Blackfriars for onward travel to London Bridge where tickets will be accepted on London Underground or eligible buses between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge and between Blackfriars and London Bridge.

    Major engineering work at London Bridge until January 2018

    Train companies affected

    Southeastern

    Routes affected

    All routes via London Bridge

    Description

    As part of the government sponsored Thameslink Programme, Network Rail is rebuilding London Bridge mainline rail station to provide more space, improved connections to more destinations and more reliable services. The rail and tube station will remain open during the work.

    Long term changes

    Significant work affecting London stations will take place over Christmas and New Year 2017/8.

    Trains will be severely impacted over this time and you will need to change your journey so we ask you to keep this in mind when booking holidays and planning ahead.

    Information about changes over the Christmas and New Year period will be made available later in September.

    Further information


    Travelling at the weekend

    Throughout the programme, different services will be impacted on some weekends and bank holidays, for the latest information visit Journey Planner to see the full impact on your journey.

    During periods of time when London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street are closed, you'll be able to use your ticket on selective alternative routes to complete your journey at no extra charge. For full details visit Southeastern. Please note the ticket acceptance detailed for weekend engineering work may differ from the Monday to Friday Thameslink Programme ticket acceptance outlined below.

    Longer term changes

    Thameslink services which run through central London will not call at London Bridge, however there will be a limited service between London Bridge and Brighton.

    Southeastern

    Until January 2018

    Most trains to and from London Charing Cross are able to stop at London Bridge again. As a result, there are some changes to ticket acceptance arrangements from Monday 4 September.

    Trains to and from London Cannon Street will no longer be able to stop at London Bridge.

    During this time, it is recommended that you consider changing your normal journey to work as the number of trains running will be reduced and are likely to be very busy.

    For a full list of major service changes visit key dates and service changes.

    For full details of these changes and the impact on your journey, please use the National Rail Enquiries Journey Planner

    Alternative routes and travel advice

    The impact on your journey will depend on the particular services that you currently use to get to and from London Bridge and what alternatives exist. Travel advice is as detailed below:

    • Change the train you catch from your home station to go direct to your national rail destination. For example switching from a London Charing Cross service to a London Cannon Street service. This may involve shifting the time that you travel, but in many cases only by a few minutes
    • If getting a different train from home is not possible, we advise you to change trains en route outside London, for example at Lewisham, Orpington, Sevenoaks or Hither Green, to get to your final destination

     

    If you are unable to complete your journey by interchanging on National Rail services outside London, you may need to use TfL services. If you have a Travelcard you may use any route covered by your ticket. Otherwise, there are specific alternative routes. For full details click here.

    • Between London Cannon Street and Charing Cross/Embankment on the District/Circle lines and on bus 15 between Cannon Street and Charing Cross
    • Between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge on the Northern line and on buses 35, 40, 133 and 343 between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge

    • Between Cannon Street and London Bridge on District/Circle/Northern lines
    • Between Cannon Street and London Bridge on bus services 17 and 521
    • Greenwich line passengers can use the DLR between Greenwich and Lewisham, changing there for a Southeastern service to London Bridge, or can use Southeastern services via Charlton

    Thameslink passengers from the south of London (with a 'Thameslink only' ticket), whose final destination is currently London Bridge should change at Elephant & Castle or London Blackfriars for onward travel to London Bridge where tickets will be accepted on London Underground or eligible buses between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge and between Blackfriars and London Bridge.
