Buses replace trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central until further notice

Train companies affected

Southeastern

Routes affected

Between Dover Priory and London Charing Cross, Ramsgate and Ashford International and also between London St Pancras International and London St Pancras International via Faversham / Dover Priory

Description

On Christmas Eve 2015, strong winds and high tides caused damage to the sea wall and track between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central. Major work will need to be carried out to repair 250 metres of track and rebuild the sea wall before the line can reopen.

Network Rail are working on a solution that will not only allow the railway to be reopened, but also to act as a sea defence for many years to come. Such a complicated design takes time to achieve and Network Rail are working as quickly as possible to provide an indication as to how long the work will take.

In the meantime more than 19,000 tonnes of rock is being placed on the beach to protect the railway from further damage.

Until the line re-opens, the following arrangements will be in place:

Buses are replacing trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central, also calling at Folkestone West.

Southeastern advise that unless you are of reduced mobility or are travelling with heavy luggage, you should change at Folkestone West for the bus service. At Folkestone West, buses will arrive / depart from the London bound side of the station (Platform 1). If you are of reduced mobility or are travelling with luggage etc., Southeastern strongly recommend that you change at Folkestone Central to avoid the need to use the subway or stairs at Folkestone West.

High Speed trains will run on the following routes:

  • Between London St Pancras International and Folkestone Central
  • Between London St Pancras International and Ramsgate via Canterbury West
  • Between London St Pancras International and Margate / Ramsgate via Faversham

 

There will be no High Speed services to or from Sandwich, Deal, Walmer or Martin Mill. Instead, a train service will run between Dover and Ramsgate, with connections available to the High Speed network at Ramsgate.

During weekday morning and evening peak periods, express buses will run between Sandwich, Deal, Walmer and Folkestone West to provide connections into High Speed services. Please note that these buses will NOT stop at Folkestone Central. If you are of limited mobility and wish to travel on these bus services, please contact the Southeastern Assisted Travel Service on 0345 322 7021 so alternative arrangements can be made for you.

If you are intending to travel between Dover and London, you may also use trains to and from London Victoria via Canterbury East as an alternative route to avoid the need for a bus journey. Travelling via this route will, in most cases, take longer than travelling via the bus service to Folkestone. Should you decide to use this route, you'll be able to use your ticket on the London Underground between London Victoria and London St Pancras International at no extra charge to complete your journey.

Whilst the line is closed, parking is available at Folkestone West free of charge. Please note that on Mondays to Fridays the car park can reach capacity by approximately 08:00.

Southeastern's travel advice for stations in the affected area is available here.

You can read Network Rail's press release here and there are photos of the damage here.

Buses replace trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central until further notice

Train companies affected

Southeastern

Routes affected

Between Dover Priory and London Charing Cross, Ramsgate and Ashford International and also between London St Pancras International and London St Pancras International via Faversham / Dover Priory

Description

On Christmas Eve 2015, strong winds and high tides caused damage to the sea wall and track between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central. Major work will need to be carried out to repair 250 metres of track and rebuild the sea wall before the line can reopen.

Network Rail are working on a solution that will not only allow the railway to be reopened, but also to act as a sea defence for many years to come. Such a complicated design takes time to achieve and Network Rail are working as quickly as possible to provide an indication as to how long the work will take.

In the meantime more than 19,000 tonnes of rock is being placed on the beach to protect the railway from further damage.

Until the line re-opens, the following arrangements will be in place:

Buses are replacing trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central, also calling at Folkestone West.

Southeastern advise that unless you are of reduced mobility or are travelling with heavy luggage, you should change at Folkestone West for the bus service. At Folkestone West, buses will arrive / depart from the London bound side of the station (Platform 1). If you are of reduced mobility or are travelling with luggage etc., Southeastern strongly recommend that you change at Folkestone Central to avoid the need to use the subway or stairs at Folkestone West.

High Speed trains will run on the following routes:

  • Between London St Pancras International and Folkestone Central
  • Between London St Pancras International and Ramsgate via Canterbury West
  • Between London St Pancras International and Margate / Ramsgate via Faversham

 

There will be no High Speed services to or from Sandwich, Deal, Walmer or Martin Mill. Instead, a train service will run between Dover and Ramsgate, with connections available to the High Speed network at Ramsgate.

During weekday morning and evening peak periods, express buses will run between Sandwich, Deal, Walmer and Folkestone West to provide connections into High Speed services. Please note that these buses will NOT stop at Folkestone Central. If you are of limited mobility and wish to travel on these bus services, please contact the Southeastern Assisted Travel Service on 0345 322 7021 so alternative arrangements can be made for you.

If you are intending to travel between Dover and London, you may also use trains to and from London Victoria via Canterbury East as an alternative route to avoid the need for a bus journey. Travelling via this route will, in most cases, take longer than travelling via the bus service to Folkestone. Should you decide to use this route, you'll be able to use your ticket on the London Underground between London Victoria and London St Pancras International at no extra charge to complete your journey.

Whilst the line is closed, parking is available at Folkestone West free of charge. Please note that on Mondays to Fridays the car park can reach capacity by approximately 08:00.

If you are of reduced mobility or are travelling with luggage etc., Southeastern strongly recommend that you change at Folkestone Central to avoid the need to use the subway or stairs at Folkestone West.

High Speed trains will run on the following routes:

  • Between London St Pancras International and Folkestone Central
  • Between London St Pancras International and Ramsgate via Canterbury West
  • Between London St Pancras International and Margate / Ramsgate via Faversham
