Replacement buses will also operate on he same route next Saturday (February 15)

Southeastern has also advised passengers not to travel tomorrow due to expected high winds, saying: “If you do decide to travel, there is a high risk of significant disruption and you may not be able to complete your journey.

If routes become blocked due to fallen trees or other debris being blown on to the line, rail replacement transport is unlikely to be available.

Exceptionally high winds from Storm Ciara are forecast across the South East area on Sunday and in the early hours of Monday. ”
