High winds expected to disrupt Southeastern rail services

Southeastern trains

Very high winds in the South East of England are expected to disrupt rail services tomorrow (Saturday, November 2), especially in coastal areas, Southeastern has warned.

To ensure that trains can travel safely, Network Rail will impose a speed restriction on some routes from around 9am. The speed restriction will have the greatest effect on Southeastern services in Kent and East Sussex, and there will be delays to many trains, with mainline and Highspeed services most affected.

To provide a more reliable service, the frequency of trains will be reduced on some routes and stopping patterns changed on others. This will affect services across the Southeastern network.

Detail of the timetable changes will be available on the Southeastern journey planner from this evening (Friday, November 1). Passengers planning to travel on Saturday should check before they travel.

If passengers are delayed by 15 minutes or more, they should claim Delay Repay by visiting www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/compensation

The Southeastern website will be kept updated with the latest information, and passengers can use Twitter (@SE_Railway) for further information.
