Description

Engineering work is taking place between Chislehurst / Bickley and Sevenoaks, closing all lines.

How will this affect my journey?

Grove Park Line: Trains will run between London Cannon Street and Chislehurst only, and buses will replace trains between Chislehurst and Sevenoaks. (These trains are also running from London Cannon Street instead of London Charing Cross.)

Hastings Line: London Cannon Street to Hastings services will be diverted via an alternative route and will not stop at Orpington but will stop at Chislehurst instead to connect with replacement bus services. (These trains are also running from London Cannon Street instead of London Charing Cross.)

Paddock Wood Line: London Cannon Street to Dover Priory / Ramsgate services will be diverted via an alternative route between London Bridge and Sevenoaks and will be retimed. (These trains are also running from London Cannon Street instead of London Charing Cross.)

Bromley South Line: Buses replace trains between Bromley South and Orpington.
