Southern performance warrants highlighting:

Leaf fall season

Network Rail are running a campaign with in association with Southeastern and GTR to reassure passengers that we’re on the case with preparations for autumn weather. Southern passengers will see alterations to off peak services on the Sutton and Epsom Downs routes. Please see our Leaf Fall information for further details.

Brighton Main Line Blockade

From Saturday 16 to Sunday 24 February 2019, and over several weekends from September 2018 to May 2019, Network Rail will be carrying out a major project to improve reliability and punctuality on the Brighton Main Line.

The team were on hand to answer customer questions on this, with the key message being to allow considerably more time for your journey, plan ahead and consider alternative routes, working from home (if possible) or travelling outside of peak times.
