Line between Dover and Folkestone set to reopen on Monday 5 September
Incident created27/12/2015 11:41
Last updated24/08/2016 02:43
Route affected

Between Dover Priory and London Charing Cross, Ramsgate and Ashford International, London St Pancras International circular services via Faversham / Dover Priory

View Map
Train operator affected Southeastern Trains
Description

On Christmas Eve 2015, strong winds and high tides caused damage to the sea wall and track between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central. Network Rail have been working to repair the line and it is now set to reopen on Monday 5 September.

The £39.8m project undertaken by Network Rail, is a solution that will not only allow the railway to re-open but will also act as a sea defence for years to come. More details on the project are available here.

Prior to the line re-opening, work on the track will be carried out right up until the day before (Sunday 4 September) so we recommend that you check before you travel on this route on Monday 5 September.

When the line reopens in September all services will run as normal. There are some minor changes to the new timetable, making it slightly different to the one in place when the line originally closed in December 2015. We advise that you check in advance and plan your journey before you travel.

The National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner is correct up to Sunday 4 September, but is not yet reflecting the re-opening of the line. Work is underway to get the information correct as soon as possible. Timetables showing services from Monday 5 September onwards are available via the following links:

London and Tonbridge to Ashford International, Canterbury West, Folkestone, Dover, Ramsgate and Margate

London to Ashford International and Canterbury West via Maidstone East

High Speed London St Pancras International to Ashford International, Canterbury West, Dover, Ramsgate

Until the line reopens, the following alterations will continue to apply:

Buses are replacing trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central, also calling at Folkestone West. If you are travelling with heavy luggage or have reduced mobility, you should change at Folkestone Central as there is no step free access at Folkestone West.

High Speed trains will run on the following routes

  • Between London St Pancras International and Folkestone Central
  • Between London St Pancras International and Ramsgate via Canterbury West
  • Between London St Pancras International and Margate / Ramsgate via Faversham

There will be no High Speed services to or from Sandwich, Deal, Walmer or Martin Mill. Instead, a train service will run between Dover and Ramsgate, with connections available to the High Speed network at Ramsgate.

During weekday morning and evening peak periods, express buses will run between Sandwich, Deal, Walmer and Folkestone West to allow passengers to connect with High Speed services. Please note that these buses will NOT stop at Folkestone Central. If you are of limited mobility and wish to travel on these bus services, please contact the Southeastern Assisted Travel Service on 0345 322 7021 so alternative arrangements can be made for you.

If you are intending to travel between Dover and London, you may also use trains to and from London Victoria via Canterbury East as an alternative route, to avoid the need for a bus journey. Travelling via this route will, in most cases, take longer than travelling via the bus service to Folkestone. Should you decide to use this route, you will be able to use your ticket on the London Underground between London Victoria and London St Pancras International at no extra charge to complete your journey.

Passengers with valid tickets from Sandwich, Deal, Walmer, Martin Mill or Dover Priory are able to park for free at Folkestone West, a permit must be displayed. More details on parking at Folkestone West are available here. Please note that on Mondays to Fridays the car park may be full by 08:00.

Southeastern's travel advice for stations in the affected area can be found here.

You can read Network Rail's press release and there are photos of the damage here.

Buses replace trains between Carlisle and Armathwaite until further notice
Start date31/01/2016
End date31/12/2016
Route affected

Trains between Carlisle and Leeds

View Map
Train operator affected Northernrail
Description

In January, poor weather conditions caused a landslip at Eden Brows, two miles north of Armathwaite. Work is ongoing to stabilise the landslip and repair damage to the track.

Background - an estimated 500,000 tonnes of earth have moved already and the embankment is still moving. Whilst monitoring the embankment, Network Rail have found a twist fault in the tracks caused by the ground movement. The slip is accelerating and the extent of this landslip means it is no longer safe to run trains on this section of railway.

Network Rail engineers have now agreed a plan to repair the landslip. The repairs will involve building a structure underneath the affected section of railway to support it. Because of the scale of the slip, the fact the earth is still moving and the inaccessibility of its location, it is not yet possible to provide an accurate time scale of how long disruption will last. More background information from Network Rail is available here.

The line between Carlisle and Armathwaite will be closed in both directions. While work is taking place a replacement bus service will run between these stations.

Buses will also run direct from Carlisle to Appleby.

Passengers travelling from Carlisle to stations between Appleby and Leeds are advised to use the direct bus service to Appleby to cut journey times to Leeds.

Additional buses will run between Penrith North Lakes and Appleby to connect with trains to / from Scotland.

Journey times may be extended by up to 60 minutes.

Non folding bicycles are not allowed on rail replacement bus services at any time. Folding bicycles are allowed if fully folded. For more information, please see here

Alternative routes and travel advice

The impact on your journey will depend on the particular services that you currently use to get to and from London Bridge and what alternatives exist. Travel advice is as follows:

  • Change the train you catch from your home station to go direct to your national rail destination. For example switching from a London Charing Cross service to a London Cannon Street service. This may involve shifting the time that you travel, but in many cases only by a few minutes.
  • If getting a different train from home is not possible, we advise you to change trains en route outside London, for example at Lewisham, Orpington, Sevenoaks or Hither Green, to get to your final destination.

If you are unable to complete your journey by interchanging on National Rail services outside London, you may need to use TfL services, if you have a Travelcard you may choose to use other routes.

The accepted routes are: 

  • London Charing Cross, Embankment, Blackfriars, Cannon Street, London Bridge, Southwark, Waterloo and Elephant & Castle underground stations
  • Between London Bridge and Waterloo/Southwark on the Jubilee line and on buses 381 and RV1 between London Bridge and Waterloo
  • Between London Bridge and Charing Cross on the Jubilee/Bakerloo/Northern lines and on buses 15 and RV1 between London Bridge and Charing Cross
  • Between London Cannon Street and Charing Cross/Embankment on the District/Circle lines and on bus 15 between Cannon Street and Charing Cross
  • Between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge on the Northern line and on buses 35, 40, 133 and 343 between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge
