Rail Passengers advised essential travel only until Sunday 26th June

Rail Passengers advised essential travel only

Travellers wishing to use Southern, Gatwick Express, Great Northern or Thameslink services over the next five days should expect severe disruption and amended timetables. This advice applies to the next two strike days (23 and 25 June) as well as non-strike days (22 and 24).

 

On Sunday 26 June, no trains will run before 0715, however after that the regular Sunday service will operate.

 

Despite widespread travel advice, passenger numbers have been higher today compared to yesterday, so Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), is reminding people once again to only travel if necessary.

 

RMT members at GTR did not vote for strike action, however, the operator depends on Network Rail signallers and engineers to keep its trains moving, and its services connect with many lines and stations managed by other operators whose staff are taking action.

 

Due to earlier finishes on strike days, each day that follows will be severely impacted, with fewer trains able to run. Disruption is expected to last until the end of the weekend.

 

For those who have no other option but to travel by train, the advice is to check amended timetables as the first and last service will differ from normal. On strike days, in particular, the last trains will finish in the afternoon.
