Christmas and New Year

Details of planned improvement work on the Southern network and how it will affect services.

Major route improvement work affecting Southern services over the Christmas and New Year period

Network Rail is renewing the track at Battersea Pier Junction to improve reliability around the Victoria station area. Most trains will divert to and from London Bridge. 

There will be no Gatwick Express service but trains to and from Gatwick Airport will run from other central London stations including Blackfriars and London Bridge.

All services at Clapham Junction are expected to be very busy. Please avoid travelling during peak hours.
