Buses replace trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central until December 2016

Train companies affected

Southeastern

Routes affected

Between Dover Priory and London Charing Cross, Ramsgate and Ashford International, London St Pancras International circular services 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. The severely damaged stretch of railway will need to be completely replaced with a new viaduct before trains can run again.

The £44.5m project to rebuild the line has already begun and Network Rail engineers say they are targeting December 2016 for the railway to re-open to trains. More details on the project are available here.

To check your journey up to and including Friday 10 June, not including 30 May, please use the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner. For details of other journeys, please check back nearer to the time of travel.

Until the line reopens, buses are replacing trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central, also calling at Folkestone West. If you are travelling with heavy luggage or have reduced mobility, you should change at Folkestone Central as there is no step free access 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 allow passengers to connect with 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 will 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.

Passengers with valid tickets from Sandwich, Deal, Walmer, Martin Mill or Dover Priory are able to park for free at Folkestone West, although this requires the display of a permit. More details on parking at Folkestone West are available here. Please note that on Mondays to Fridays the car park may be full by 08:00.

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

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

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 follows:

  • 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 choose to use other routes.

The accepted routes are:

  • Between London Bridge and Waterloo / Southwark on Jubilee Line and on bus services (services 381 and RV1)
  • Between London Bridge and Charing Cross on Jubilee / Bakerloo / Northern Lines and on bus services (services RV1 and 15)
  • Between Cannon Street and Charing Cross / Embankment on District / Circle and on bus services (service 15)
  • Between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge on Northern Line and on bus services (service 35, 40, 133 & 343)
  • Between Blackfriars and London Bridge and on bus services (service 17 (Blackfriars North), 381 & RV1 (Blackfriars South)

 

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. These recommended routes are shown here.

Southern (and any permitted route) passengers who currently interchange onto National Rail services at London Bridge for travel to London Charing Cross or London Waterloo East should take London Underground or eligible bus services where their tickets will be accepted between London Bridge to Charing Cross or Waterloo / Southwark. These recommended routes are shown here.

South West Trains passengers who currently interchange at London Waterloo East for London Bridge should take London Underground or eligible bus services between London Bridge and London Waterloo / Southwark where their tickets will be accepted. These recommended routes are shown here.

Buses replace trains between Carlisle and Appleby until further notice

Train companies affected

Northern

Routes affected

Trains between Carlisle and Leeds

Description

In January, poor weather conditions caused a landslip at Eden Brows, two miles north of Armathwaite. Work is ongoing to stabilise the landslip and repair damage to the track.

The line between Carlisle and Appleby is currently closed in both directions while work is taking place and a replacement bus service is in operation, extending journey times by up to 60 minutes.

Trains are running normally on the rest of the Settle-Carlisle line, between Appleby and Leeds.

Background - an estimated 500,000 tonnes of earth have moved already and the embankment is still moving. Whilst monitoring the embankment, Network Rail have found a twist fault in the tracks caused by the ground movement. The slip is accelerating and the extent of this landslip means it is no longer safe to run trains on this section of railway.

Network Rail engineers have now agreed a plan to repair the landslip. The repairs will involve building a structure underneath the affected section of railway to support it. Because of the scale of the slip, the fact the earth is still moving and the inaccessibility of its location, it is not yet possible to provide an accurate time scale of how long disruption will last. More background information from Network Rail is available here.

Buses replace trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central until December 2016

Train companies affected

Southeastern

Routes affected

Between Dover Priory and London Charing Cross, Ramsgate and Ashford International, London St Pancras International circular services 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. The severely damaged stretch of railway will need to be completely replaced with a new viaduct before trains can run again.

The £44.5m project to rebuild the line has already begun and Network Rail engineers say they are targeting December 2016 for the railway to re-open to trains. More details on the project are available here.

To check your journey up to and including Friday 10 June, not including 30 May, please use the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner. For details of other journeys, please check back nearer to the time of travel.

Until the line reopens, buses are replacing trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central, also calling at Folkestone West. If you are travelling with heavy luggage or have reduced mobility, you should change at Folkestone Central as there is no step free access 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 allow passengers to connect with 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 will 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.

Passengers with valid tickets from Sandwich, Deal, Walmer, Martin Mill or Dover Priory are able to park for free at Folkestone West, although this requires the display of a permit. More details on parking at Folkestone West are available here. Please note that on Mondays to Fridays the car park may be full by 08:00.

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

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

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 follows:

  • 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 choose to use other routes.

The accepted routes are:

  • Between London Bridge and Waterloo / Southwark on Jubilee Line and on bus services (services 381 and RV1)
  • Between London Bridge and Charing Cross on Jubilee / Bakerloo / Northern Lines and on bus services (services RV1 and 15)
  • Between Cannon Street and Charing Cross / Embankment on District / Circle and on bus services (service 15)
  • Between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge on Northern Line and on bus services (service 35, 40, 133 & 343)
  • Between Blackfriars and London Bridge and on bus services (service 17 (Blackfriars North), 381 & RV1 (Blackfriars South)

 

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. These recommended routes are shown here.

Southern (and any permitted route) passengers who currently interchange onto National Rail services at London Bridge for travel to London Charing Cross or London Waterloo East should take London Underground or eligible bus services where their tickets will be accepted between London Bridge to Charing Cross or Waterloo / Southwark. These recommended routes are shown here.

South West Trains passengers who currently interchange at London Waterloo East for London Bridge should take London Underground or eligible bus services between London Bridge and London Waterloo / Southwark where their tickets will be accepted. These recommended routes are shown here.

Buses replace trains between Carlisle and Appleby until further notice

Train companies affected

Northern

Routes affected

Trains between Carlisle and Leeds

Description

In January, poor weather conditions caused a landslip at Eden Brows, two miles north of Armathwaite. Work is ongoing to stabilise the landslip and repair damage to the track.

The line between Carlisle and Appleby is currently closed in both directions while work is taking place and a replacement bus service is in operation, extending journey times by up to 60 minutes.

Trains are running normally on the rest of the Settle-Carlisle line, between Appleby and Leeds.

Background - an estimated 500,000 tonnes of earth have moved already and the embankment is still moving. Whilst monitoring the embankment, Network Rail have found a twist fault in the tracks caused by the ground movement. The slip is accelerating and the extent of this landslip means it is no longer safe to run trains on this section of railway.

Network Rail engineers have now agreed a plan to repair the landslip. The repairs will involve building a structure underneath the affected section of railway to support it. Because of the scale of the slip, the fact the earth is still moving and the inaccessibility of its location, it is not yet possible to provide an accurate time scale of how long disruption will last. More background information from Network Rail is available here.

Between Dover Priory and London Charing Cross, Ramsgate and Ashford International, London St Pancras International circular services 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. The severely damaged stretch of railway will need to be completely replaced with a new viaduct before trains can run again.

The £44.5m project to rebuild the line has already begun and Network Rail engineers say they are targeting December 2016 for the railway to re-open to trains. More details on the project are available here.

To check your journey up to and including Friday 10 June, not including 30 May, please use the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner. For details of other journeys, please check back nearer to the time of travel.

Until the line reopens, buses are replacing trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central, also calling at Folkestone West. If you are travelling with heavy luggage or have reduced mobility, you should change at Folkestone Central as there is no step free access 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.

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 will 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.

Passengers with valid tickets from Sandwich, Deal, Walmer, Martin Mill or Dover Priory are able to park for free at Folkestone West, although this requires the display of a permit.

Buses replace trains between Carlisle and Appleby until further notice

Train companies affected

Northern

Routes affected

Trains between Carlisle and Leeds

Description

In January, poor weather conditions caused a landslip at Eden Brows, two miles north of Armathwaite. Work is ongoing to stabilise the landslip and repair damage to the track.

The line between Carlisle and Appleby is currently closed in both directions while work is taking place and a replacement bus service is in operation, extending journey times by up to 60 minutes.

Trains are running normally on the rest of the Settle-Carlisle line, between Appleby and Leeds.

Background - an estimated 500,000 tonnes of earth have moved already and the embankment is still moving. Whilst monitoring the embankment, Network Rail have found a twist fault in the tracks caused by the ground movement. The slip is accelerating and the extent of this landslip means it is no longer safe to run trains on this section of railway.

Network Rail engineers have now agreed a plan to repair the landslip. The repairs will involve building a structure underneath the affected section of railway to support it. Because of the scale of the slip, the fact the earth is still moving and the inaccessibility of its location, it is not yet possible to provide an accurate time scale of how long disruption will last. More background information from Network Rail is available here.
