TOC(s) affected

Engineering work is taking place between Farringdon and Loughborough Junction, closing all lines.

How Does This Affect My Journey?

  • An amended train service will operate between Bedford / Luton and London St Pancras International and between Gatwick Airport and Brighton
  • NO Thameslink services will operate between London St Pancras International and Gatwick Airport. Passengers should use Southern services between London Victoria and Redhill
  • Buses will operate between Redhill and Gatwick Airport  (due to other engineering work)
  • Additional services will run from London Bridge to Sutton via Wimbledon
  • Trains which normally run between London Blackfriars and Sevenoaks will be diverted to operate between London Victoria and Sevenoaks to an amended timetable
  • On Monday until 05:00, trains will operate between London Bridge and Redhill to connect with the rail replacement bus service. Rail replacement buses will operate between London St Pancras International and London Bridge, when London Underground services are not operating. 

Alternative Travel Options:

Passengers may use:

  • London Underground via any reasonable route including between London St Pancras International and London Victoria
  • Southern services to and from London Victoria
  • Passengers requiring stations between Streatham and Sutton (via Mitcham Junction and Wimbledon) can use London Buses via any reasonable route
