TOC(s) affected

Engineering work is taking place between Dartford / Ebbsfleet International and Gillingham, closing all lines.

As a result, buses will replace trains between:

  • Ebbsfleet and Meopham (for connections to services between London Victoria and Faversham / Ramsgate).
  • Ebbsfleet and Gravesend / Strood.
  • Dartford and Gillingham (calling all stations except Higham).
  • Dartford and Gravesend.
  • Gravesend and Maidstone West.

High Speed services that usually run via Gravesend will not run between London St Pancras International and Ebbsfleet International, and also between Faversham and Ramsgate.

Services that usually run between London Charing Cross and Gravesend (via Sidcup) will run between London Charing Cross and Dartford only.

Trains that usually run between Tonbridge and Strood will run between Tonbridge and Maidstone West only.
