TOC(s) affected

Engineering work is taking place between Barking and Grays, and also between Upminster and Grays, closing all lines.

As a result, trains that normally run via Ockendon will be diverted by an alternate route, not calling at Stanford-le-Hope, East Tilbury, Tilbury Town, Grays, Chafford Hundred or Ockendon.

Replacement buses will run between Barking and Grays via Rainham, and also between Upminster and Pitsea via Ockendon.
