Changes to rail services until Easter

Until 24th March buses are replacing trains throughout the day between Uckfield and Oxted, between 9.20 and 4.40 from Monday to Friday.  This is part of the engineer work to extend station platforms in order that longer trains can be introduced on the line.

Passengers travelling to London in the middle of the day will need to catch a bus to Oxted or use an alternative service.  This is also the case again after Easter.

It is a rather complicated pattern, so to be clear here is a full list of alterations (correct as of 14th February).  You are advised to check Southern’s website before making travel arrangements as there are likely to be amendments!  www.southernrailway.com.
