Rail networks still experiencing problems

Southern trains have been the hardest hit with no direct services operating between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport due to a landslip in the Ockley area.

There are no services to West Croydon, and passengers are advised to change at East Croydon for Croydon Tramlink, where Southern tickets will be accepted.

Passengers for Epsom Downs are advised to use 166 bus between Croydon and Epsom Downs where any Southern Rail ticket will also be valid.

Some of the planned Victoria to East Grinstead services (four trains per hour) will be diverted into and out of London Bridge (2 trains per hour).

Passengers for Gatwick Airport using these services can connect to a bus for Gatwick Airport at East Grinstead.

Southern tickets will be accepted on London Underground between London Bridge and Victoria, on London Tramlink between East Croydon and Wimbledon and on South West Trains between Waterloo, Clapham and Wimbledon.
