Improving your railway

Demand for rail services continues to grow year-on-year. Southern has the most congested network in the country and passenger numbers to London have doubled in just 12 years. To meet the demand we are modernising the railway with new trains, better infrastructure and updated working practices.

Please plan ahead if you are travelling between 23 December 2017 and 1 January 2018 as improvement work as well as the normal service alterations over this period will mean that services on most routes will be amended.
