This is an important announcement
Disruption to services through Gatwick Airport
A fire broke out this morning on a section of track outside Gatwick Airport. The emergency services attended and the fire is out, however the electrical third rail, running rail, and some surrounding cables have all suffered extensive damage.
Network Rail, who own and maintain the signalling and track, have advised us that this damage has rendered two of the four lines through Gatwick Airport unusable. The repairs necessary to bring the lines back into use are underway and they are hopeful that these lines will be available to us again in time for the evening peak.
We are receiving reports from the worksite every 30 minutes and will update you with more information as it is made available to us.
For more information, and to find out how you can claim compensation for your delay, please visit out live running information page.
