Buses replace trains between Dover Priory and Folkestone Central until December 2016
Incident created27/12/2015 11:41

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. The severely damaged stretch of railway will need to be completely replaced with a new viaduct before trains can run again.

The £44.5m project to rebuild the line has already begun and Network Rail engineers say they are targeting December 2016 for the railway to re-open to trains. More details on the project are available here.

To check your journey up to Sunday 28 August, please use the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner. For details of other journeys, please check back nearer to the time of travel.

Until the line reopens, 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 is available here.

Ongoing disruption to Southern services due to train crew availability
Incident created21/06/2016 20:19
Last updated25/06/2016 03:42
Route affectedVarious Southern routes
Train operator affected Southern Rail
Description

Southern services continue to be severely affected by train crew availability including a high level of conductor sickness, which is leading to some services being cancelled for part or all of their journey.

It is not practical to replace every cancelled service with a bus replacement and in many cases it will be most appropriate to wait for the next train that is running. This may mean longer delays at stations awaiting the next service. We strongly advise that before you leave for the station you visit the live departure boards page to check your journey.

On a single journey many Southern services will have one of more changes of conductor en-route. This is leading to a large number of services being cancelled for part of their journey. This is on top of the full cancellations to services that are also occuring as a result of the shortages. To help make things more predictable, a small number of train services will be pre-cancelled each day. A list of the services which have been pre-cancelled is available here.

Where Southern discover late notice crew issues, this may result in trains being delayed waiting for an alternative conductor to be arranged. If no alternative can be found, this can lead to a short notice cancellation. This is particularly disruptive to the train service as it requires that passengers must leave the train before it moves clear of the main lines, which takes time. While this is taking place, other train services can quickly become stuck in a queue or have to use alternative lines or platforms, causing further delay to trains.

Southern are working around the clock to deal with these service-affecting situations as quickly as possible and to give as much warning of cancellations as possible. Please check live departure boards for the latest information of services from your station.

Alternative travel options passengers may use:

  • Brighton and Hove Buses between Brighton and Shoreham-by-Sea (Route 2) and between Brighton and Eastbourne via Seaford (Route 12).
  • Great Western Railway / Metrobus between Redhill and Reigate.
  • Stagecoach buses on route 700 between Brighton and Worthing. Cannot be used between the hours of 16:00 and 19:00.
  • Thameslink between Brighton and London Bridge.

Buses replace trains between Carlisle and Appleby 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 Appleby will be closed in both directions. While work is taking place a replacement bus service will run between the stations, extending journey times by up to 60 minutes.

Trains will run normally on the rest of the Settle-Carlisle line, between Appleby and Leeds.

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.

  • Between London Bridge and Waterloo / Southwark on Jubilee Line and on bus services (services 381 and RV1)
  • Between London Bridge and Charing Cross on Jubilee / Bakerloo / Northern Lines and on bus services (services RV1 and 15)
  • Between Cannon Street and Charing Cross / Embankment on District / Circle and on bus services (service 15)
  • Between Elephant & Castle and London Bridge on Northern Line and on bus services (service 35, 40, 133 & 343)
