TOC(s) affected
National Rail;

A reduced service will operate from Monday to Friday on Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern routes until further notice. The Gatwick Express service has been suspended. This is due to the significant ongoing impact of Coronavirus, particularly in terms of staff sickness which businesses and transport operators across the country continue to see.

By reducing the service, the aim is to provide more certainty over which trains will run for those that are travelling, and reduce unexpected cancellations.

The times of trains on all routes will be changed and, on many routes, services will be reduced.
