As Network Rail completes engineering works as part of the Thameslink Programme upgrade, Southeastern is introducing revised timetables from 2 January 2018. Passengers will start to see the benefits of the London Bridge upgrade with a full Southeastern service for the first time in three years.
This is pending completely new timetables from May 2018, which will include new direct connections to and from a wide range of Kent and South East London destinations and will be announced in due course.
From 2 January the initial timetable changes involve the following:
- New platforms 1, 2 and 3 at London Bridge will enable trains to and from Cannon Street to call again at London Bridge.
- Most services to and from Cannon Street will arrive 1 minute later and leave 1 minute earlier to allow time for the new stop at London Bridge.
- Services that were previously diverted to other London stations because of the London Bridge upgrade are restored to normal.
- Minor changes to departure and arrival times at destinations on most Southeastern routes.
Ellie Burrows, Train Services Director Southeastern, said:
“The London Bridge upgrade has been a truly remarkable project and we are delighted that, finally, our passengers can once again start to enjoy the benefits of a full Southeastern service from January. We encourage them to consult the new timetables when planning their journeys and keep a look out for the May timetables in due course too.”
