Description

fault with the signalling system between Wandsworth Road and Brixton is resulting in disruption to trains running between London Victoria and Denmark Hill / Herne Hill.

London Overground Customer Advice:

To help you with your journey, you may use the following alternative route map here.

Southeastern Customer Advice:

What's happened?

A fault with the signalling system at Brixton earlier meant that services were unable to run into and out of London Victoria and were severely disrupted.

Network Rail response staff have managed to make a temporary fix to the signalling to allow us to run services in and out of London Victoria.

How does this affect my journey?

Services in and out of London Victoria have been reinstated and are now running. The last trains which normally run out of London Victoria will run from there.

There will still be delays and alterations to services for the rest of the night following this incident as trains and crew have been displaced by the severe disruption during the day.

What do I need to do?

Please allow more time to reach your destination this evening and check online journey planners for up to date information.

You can use your tickets on the following services at no extra cost to help you complete your journey:

  • London Underground via reasonable routes between our London Terminals, and between London Victoria and Brixton.​​​​​​​
  • London Buses between London and Bromley / Lewisham
  • London Tramlink between Beckenham Junction and East Croydon
