Passengers in the south east of England are advised to check before they travel this early May bank holiday

Route:
South East

Passengers in the south east are reminded to check before they travel as work continues on the Thameslink Programme and maintenance work takes place across the route.

On 29 April, essential maintenance work near New Cross will mean no Southeastern services between Cannon Street and Dartford via Greenwich and Woolwich, and on 30 April trains will not run between Dartford and London Victoria via Bexleyheath.   On Monday 1 May, there will be no Southeastern trains running to or from Cannon Street station and a reduced service will run to and from Charing Cross.

Also on 1 May, maintenance work will take place between Hither Green and Petts Wood, affecting Southeastern passengers on this part of the railway. 

Passengers are advised to check before they travel at www.nationalrail.co.uk, or www.southernrailway.com, www.thameslinkrailway.com and www.southeasternrailway.co.uk. In addition, they can follow our work on Twitter with the hashtag #SpringBHWorks .

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Every day, there are more than 4.7 million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.

We are building a better railway for a better Britain.
