Planned engineering work
We need to do engineering work to maintain and improve the rail network. Much of this work is done at weekends and during holiday periods, but some work also needs to be done overnight during the week.
Buses will replace train services where lines are closed for work to take place. We may also have to alter train services over a wider area.
Please use the Engineering Work calendar and click on a date to get information about planned engineering work for that day.
For the latest information on how London Underground services are running, we recommend you visit the "Transport for London" website.
Late alteration to replacement bus service
Sunday 1 March - Chiswick and Kew Bridge
Chiswick Bridge is shut this weekend for major repairs and buses between Chiswick and Barnes must run via Kew Bridge.
Passengers from Chiswick will need to travel EARLIER than originally advertised.
If you wish to travel between Chiswick and Kew Bridge stations, please check you have bus times for the correct direction.
The revised bus timetable has been posted on the "March Summary" page together with the "Kingston Loop" service.
Only Chiswick and Kew Bridge stations are affected - bus times at other locations are unchanged.
Major engineering work on Island Line
All days until Friday 20 March
The railway embankment near Sandown needs major repairs and so Island Line will be closed between Ryde St Johns Road and Shanklin during this time. Replacement bus services will run, connecting with a revised train service to and from Ryde Pier Head.
Please visit the Island Line website for more details and special timetables of altered train services and replacement buses.
The London Underground network also needs to be maintained and improved. If you need to use the Underground to connect with our services, please visit the "Transport for London" website for information about London Underground services.
Travelling to London Bridge?
Work for the "Thameslink" project will affect services through London Bridge until 2018. In particular, until August 2016 there will be no train service between Waterloo East and London Bridge.
Please visit our "London Bridge" page for more information about alternative routes and ticket availability.
Help with planning your journey
Travelling late evening or early morning?
If you intend travelling after 23:00 or before 05:30 please check train times here to confirm your journey, as engineering works that affect these services may not be indicated on these summaries.
Late notice service alterations
Sometimes we have to alter our services at short notice. Please check our "Live train information" page for details of any late alterations.
More detailed information is available from National Rail Enquiries at www.nationalrail.co.uk or on 08457 48 49 50 (24 hours. Calls are charged at local rate and may be recorded).
We are sorry that cycles, prams and items of bulky luggage cannot be carried on buses or taxis provided to replace train services during engineering work.
