Network Rail monitoring equipment has detected ground movement affecting the line between Dover Priory and Folkestone following the wettest February for 200 years.

Regular checks are being carried out on the line and a temporary speed restriction is in place. Southeastern have made some limited service changes to provide you with a reliable and robust train service while Network Rail assess the work needed.

Trains will be amended as follows:

Highspeed via Ashford International: Trains from Ramsgate to London St Pancras International via Dover Priory will be retimed, and will run earlier between Ramsgate and Dover Priory. There are no changes to trains in the opposite direction, from London St Pancras International to Ramsgate via Dover Priory.

Paddock Wood line: Trains from Dover Priory to London Charing Cross will leave Dover Priory 2 minutes earlier. Off-peak trains from London Charing Cross to Dover Priory will not stop at Folkestone West.
