Changes to Southeastern rail services

A new timetable across the railway industry came into effect over the weekend.

Commuters woke up to a new timetable on Southeastern Railway this morning, with the changes being introduced at the weekend.

The changes will see additional services introduced across the south east, with some services having extra carriages creating more seats for passengers.

Meanwhile, the line between Charlton and Blackheath will be closed for essential repair work for 10-weeks from Saturday 1 June through to Sunday 11 August inclusive.

The line will re-open for the start of service on the morning of Monday 12 August.

Network Rail is carrying out £10 million essential repairs in the 175-year-old Victorian-era structure as the mile-long tunnel is prone to water damage, which can cause delays. The tunnel is safe but needs major investment to protect it for the future.
