Easter weekend – London Bridge closed to Southern services

Date: 10 Apr 2014

Passengers advised to check before they travel as London Bridge station will be closed to Southern services for all four Easter holiday days.

Network Rail continues to rebuild London Bridge station as part of the Thameslink Programme. Part of this work requires engineering work to upgrade the track and signalling systems in and around the station, and work is taking place this Easter weekend (Friday 18th to Monday 21st April inclusive). As a result, no Southern services will call at London Bridge on these days.

Southern services that normally call at London Bridge will be heavily revised, and passengers should check their options before they travel and allow extra time for their journeys.

There are also some engineering works on other parts of the Southern network over the Easter holidays including at Southampton Central station over all four days and on Sunday 20th:

  • Between Battersea Park and Balham
  • Between South Croydon and Oxted
