Between London Fenchurch Street / London Liverpool Street and Southend Central / Shoeburyness

TOC(s) affected

Track work is taking place on one of the two lines between Upminster and Laindon.

As a result of this, the line from Upminster towards Laindon will be closed between 08:00 and 16:00 and all trains between these stations will run on the line from Laindon towards Upminster, which will remain open.

Trains from London Fenchurch Street / London Liverpool Street to Shoeburyness will use platform 1 at West Hordon and platform 2 at Laindon. Some services will be retimed and it may be necessary for trains to wait at Upminster for slightly longer than usual.

Trains from Southend Central towards London Fenchurch Street via Ockendon will run slightly later than usual from Ockenden onwards because of the retimed services at Upminster.
