No trains will operate between Chessington South and Malden Manor between 5-28 August 2017.
During this time, an enhanced rail replacement bus service will call at these stations and carry passengers to Worcester Park for travel towards London. Your journey will be extended by up to 45 minutes.
If you will be travelling from any of these stations during this time, please allow extra time to complete your journey.
More details on replacement bus frequencies and times will be provided in due course.
You may also wish to consider:
- Travel earlier or later than normal. If you will be catching a train from Worcester Park, or another station please keep in mind the busiest trains arrive into London between 8 and 9am and leave London between 5.30 and 6.30pm. To help you travel outside of these times we will provide longer trains for extended periods
- Not travelling. If you are able to do so, you might want to consider working from home or planning a summer holiday for some or all of this time
Why is the Chessington branch closed?
As a result of the reduced capacity available into London Waterloo, we unfortunately have to reduce the number of trains travelling into London Waterloo. The Chessington line will be closed and passengers will be provided with an enhanced bus replacement service to Worcester Park for onward travel to London.
The works taking place will allow longer 10-carriage trains to serve the Chessington line from December 2017.
