Travel Disruptions (6)

Major disruption to Gatwick Express, Southern and Thameslink services until the end of the day

A number of incidents have occurred across the Gatwick Express, Southern and Thameslink network, causing major disruption to services until the end of the day. 

Trains may be cancelled or delayed by up to 50 minutes. 

Customer Advice:
You are strongly advised to check your journey prior to travelling and to allow extra time for your journey today.

There has been a number of incidents across the network which will cause severe delays and cancellations for the rest of the day

To assist you with your journey today your tickets will be accepted on the following services via any reasonable route:

  • Mutual ticket acceptance between Southern and Thameslink 
  • Gatwick Express are accepting Southern and Thamelink tickets
  • London Underground
  • TfL London Buses between Central London to Redhill
  • Croydon Tramlink
  • Metrobus between Redhill and Three Bridges
  • Southeastern services between London Victoria to Beckenham Junction and Tunbridge Wells
  • Southwestern Railway services between London Waterloo, Wimbledon, Dorking, Guildford and Portsmouth Harbour


Ongoing Incidents

Points have failed at Three Bridges platform 1. This is affecting services travelling towards Crawley. At present there is no ETA for engineers as their teams are currently dealing with the other issues on the network.

Signal failure at Salfords. The signal is stuck on a red which means the drivers are having to be talked passed this particular signal resulting in further delays.

There is a signalling problem in the Kingswood area. This is affecting services to and from Tattenham Corner which are subsequently being delayed by an additional 10 minutes passing through this area.

Norwood Junction is currently experiencing a signal failure. Services from London running through this station will experience delays. Engineers are on site and working continuously to try and fix the problem.

There is a signalling problem in the Kingswood area. This is affecting services to and from Tattenham Corner. Engineers are due to attend as soon as possible however they are currently being delayed working on the signal failure issues at Norwood Junction.

In hot weather signals and points can fail easily. They might expand too much or get clogged with debris. Network Rail are working extremely hard to fix these issues and Southern will endeavour to run as many services as possible.


Previous Incidents

Earlier today Network Rail advised us of numerous signalling faults at Horley which they were working intensely to resolve however come the early evening an additional signalling fault had occurred at Horley which affected services travelling from London to Haywards Heath. This has now been resolved.

There was an on going issue with a set of points affecting platform 2 at Gatwick Airport. At the time we were able to work around this however this has now been fixed.

The signalling issue at London Victoria has now been repaired and services are now able to run in and out of the station on their normal platforms.

Earlier in the Eastbourne area, there was a power surge which affected services running in and out of Eastbourne station. Only platform 2 was in use which meant services need to wait outside the station for the platform to become available. As a result of this services have been delayed.

Shortly before 1500 today, we received reports that a person had been struck by a train in the Croydon area. Emergency services and railway response staff were dispatched to site and the individual is now in the care of the ambulance staff.

Earlier today a set of points at Hurst Green failed. This meant that services were temporarily unable to run up towards Oxted and London. Network Rail attended and were able fix the problem.

There were two earlier bridge strikes - one at Emsworth and another at Wivelsfield. Services had to run at a reduced speed whilst specialists investigated any damage to the bridges. No damage was found and trains were able to continue to run.

How is this currently affecting the train service?

When there is severe disruption, there are often crew shortages. This is because staff have a maximum number of hours they are able to work. Although at times it seems as though there is a train available to run, there may not be enough staff available to drive or work on the train, and therefore services will be cancelled.

We will endeavour to run as many services as possible, however these may be altered at the last minute to accommodate our crews working regulations.

Southern apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to your journey today.
