Ongoing upgrade work as part of the Thameslink Programme means that – from Sunday 21 May – some of Southeastern’s Sunday services from Charing Cross will go back to running in to and out of Cannon Street.
From this Sunday, trains from Charing Cross travelling to Hayes or Sevenoaks via Grove Park go back to running from Cannon St and will call additionally at New Cross and St Johns, but will no longer serve Waterloo East or London Bridge.
The 0749 Sunday service from Tonbridge to Charing Cross will start from Hastings at 0650 calling at St Leonards Warrior Square, West St Leonards, Crowhurst, Battle, Robertsbridge, Etchingham, Stonegate, Wadhurst, Frant, Tunbridge Wells and High Brooms.
While the 0720 Hastings to Charing Cross will start at 0731 and will no longer call at West St Leonards, Crowhurst, Robertsbridge, Etchingham, Stonegate or Frant.
These changes will mean passengers travelling on the Hastings line get an earlier London service on Sundays.
There are no changes to services running on a Saturday and only one change to a week-day service. The 1854 from Cannon Street to Sidcup will terminate at Crayford and not continue to Sidcup.
Passengers should also check before they travel as engineering work is taking place during the bank holiday weekend of Saturday 27 May - Monday 29 May more information is available here southeasternrailway.co.uk/easter
Notes to editors:
Upcoming work as part of the Thameslink Programme: Passengers also need to be aware of, and plan ahead for work between Saturday 26 August to Saturday 2 September 2017 as part of the Thameslink Programme. It will mean there will be no Southeastern services at London Bridge, Charing Cross and Waterloo East. This will have a considerable impact on journeys into and out of London, and those trains running may be diverted to different stations. As we will running fewer trains than normal during this time, trains and stations will be busy and you should look at alternative routes and travel outside of peak hours wherever possible, or consider working from home during this period.
