Important alert

Due to a signalling problem between Three Bridges and Haywards Heath,

trains are running at a reduced speed between these stations. This has led to a large amount of delays and will lead to cancellations whilst we recover the train service.

Network Rail, who own and maintain the signalling and track, are attending the reported signalling fault and will be providing updates to us. They are expected to be on site shortly and we will then provide further information about the problem. In the mean time. Please click on the link below for further information concerning delays explained.

or you can follow this incident on our social media #HaywardsHeath.
