    Train companies affected

    Gatwick Express, Southern

    Routes affected

    Bus replacement service between Redhill and Three Bridges

    Description

    Overcrowding between Redhill and Three Bridges has resulted in disruption for the rail replacement bus service that is in operation between these stations.

    Train services are suspended between Redhill and Three Bridges.

    Disruption is expected until the end of the day.

    Customer Advice:
    If you are travelling between London, Gatwick Airport and Brighton you should allow extra time for your journey due to planned engineering work. There is currently a large queue of people at Redhill, and the wait to board a rail replacement bus from Redhill to Gatwick Airport and Three Bridges is approximately two hours.

    If you are travelling to Brighton or other East Coast destinations you can use your ticket to travel on Southeastern services from London Bridge and Waterloo East to Hastings, where you can join Coastway services to reach your destination. If you choose this option you will be able to use your ticket on London Underground on any reasonable routes to London Bridge and Waterloo East.

    You can also travel on South Western Railway services via London Waterloo, Petersfield and Havant where you can join services via Chichester, although rail replacement works are also taking place on this route and part of the journey will involve replacement buses.

    If you are travelling in the London bound direction, you can use Great Western Railway services between Redhill and Guildford, and South Western Railway services between Guildford, Clapham Junction and London Waterloo to reach London.

    What is happening with the train service?
    Planned engineering works are in place today and replacement buses are running between Redhill and Three Bridges. Gatwick Airport is being served by rail replacement buses, and there are no direct trains running between London, Gatwick Airport and Coastal destinations.

    What is the current situation?
    At present there is a large queue of people at Redhill, waiting for buses towards Gatwick Airport, Three Bridges and other stations between. In addition to the planned vehicles which are running on this route, we have sourced an additional 17 buses which are running between Redhill, Gatwick and Three Bridges. We have also arranged for additional staff to attend the station to assist with the queues.

    Routes affected

    Bus replacement service between Redhill and Three Bridges

    Description

    Overcrowding between Redhill and Three Bridges has resulted in disruption for the rail replacement bus service that is in operation between these stations.

    Train services are suspended between Redhill and Three Bridges.

    Disruption is expected until the end of the day.

    Customer Advice:
    If you are travelling between London, Gatwick Airport and Brighton you should allow extra time for your journey due to planned engineering work. There is currently a large queue of people at Redhill, and the wait to board a rail replacement bus from Redhill to Gatwick Airport and Three Bridges is approximately two hours.

    If you are travelling to Brighton or other East Coast destinations you can use your ticket to travel on Southeastern services from London Bridge and Waterloo East to Hastings, where you can join Coastway services to reach your destination. If you choose this option you will be able to use your ticket on London Underground on any reasonable routes to London Bridge and Waterloo East.

    You can also travel on South Western Railway services via London Waterloo, Petersfield and Havant where you can join services via Chichester, although rail replacement works are also taking place on this route and part of the journey will involve replacement buses.

    If you are travelling in the London bound direction, you can use Great Western Railway services between Redhill and Guildford, and South Western Railway services between Guildford, Clapham Junction and London Waterloo to reach London.

    What is happening with the train service?
    Planned engineering works are in place today and replacement buses are running between Redhill and Three Bridges. Gatwick Airport is being served by rail replacement buses, and there are no direct trains running between London, Gatwick Airport and Coastal destinations.

    What is the current situation?
    At present there is a large queue of people at Redhill, waiting for buses towards Gatwick Airport, Three Bridges and other stations between. In addition to the planned vehicles which are running on this route, we have sourced an additional 17 buses which are running between Redhill, Gatwick and Three Bridges. We have also arranged for additional staff to attend the station to assist with the queues.
