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.

Between 5-28 August 2017 inclusive, no trains will call at Earlsfield station on weekdays, in either direction, during the mornings and evenings.

Therefore, the station will be closed until 1000 and again from 1630 to 1930. 

Trains will stop at Earlsfield in both directions between 10.00am and 16.30pm and after 19.30pm.

During the planned works, roads in the surrounding area will be busier. Local buses to Earlsfield, Clapham Junction, Vauxhall and London Waterloo will also be busier than usual. The Victoria line from Vauxhall, the Northern line from Tooting Broadway and the District line from East Putney will also be very busy during the works.

We are working with Transport for London to help passengers in Earlsfield travel during this time and further information will be provided in due course.

Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey.

If you are travelling during the mornings and evenings during this time, you can take a bus to the following destinations: :

  •  Clapham Junction for South West Trains, Southern or London Overground services to Central London
  • Vauxhall for Victoria Line services
  • Bus to London Waterloo for onwards connections

Passengers should remember that Vauxhall and Clapham Junction will have fewer South West Trains services than normal and there are likely to be queues at these stations.

You may wish to consider:

  • Trains will call at Earlsfield between 10am and 4.30pm and after 7.30pm. You may wish to catch a train from Earlsfield between these times.
  • Travelling from a different station or by using an alternative form of transport
  • If you are organising a summer holiday or are able to work from home, you might want to keep these changes in mind.

Why is Earlsfield station closed during the busiest times of the day?

As a result of the reduced capacity during the works at London Waterloo, the frequency of trains calling at Earlsfield would have to reduce from 18 trains per hour to just eight. We appreciate how busy Earlsfield station is and given the reduced train service, passengers would find it extremely difficult to board trains during the mornings and evenings.

As a result, Earlsfield station and platforms would become extremely overcrowded and potentially dangerous; particularly as the layout of the station does not leave space for passengers to safely wait or queue elsewhere.

We are therefore advising passengers well in advance to consider their options. That could include changing your usual work or travel patterns, using an alternative station or local bus services.

Please remember, this work will allow longer, 10-carriages trains to call at Earlsfield, providing more space for passengers. From December 2017, more than three quarters of trains calling at Earlsfield will made up of 10 carriages as opposed to 8.

Between 10am and 4pm the enhanced rail replacement bus service will also serve Chessington World of Adventures, picking up and dropping off in the main visitor car park. As a result, visitors will not need to walk from Chessington South station.

Staff  and signage will also be on hand at Worcester Park station to direct visitors to the correct bus for their onward journey.

For more information on Chessington World of Adventures and to book your visit, please visit: https://www.chessington.com/

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.

Timetables during this time are available online. Please plan ahead by visiting www.nationalrail.co.uk or you can download and print you own personal timetable by visiting www.southwesttrains.co.uk/printyourowntimetable

Between 5-28 August, Norbiton station will be closed. The closest station to Kingston Hospital will therefore be Kingston, approximately one mile away.

Trains to Kingston station will run via Twickenham, extending journey times to and from central London by approximately 20 minutes.

We have worked closely with Kingston Hospital in order to minimise disruption to patients and staff during this time.

For more detailed information and travel options, please view the leaflet we have produced with the hospital which sets out your travel options during this time.

This summer, between 5 and 28 August inclusive, fewer South West Trains services will run while work starts to extend platforms at London Waterloo. This will allow longer trains with more seats and more space for passengers.

Timetables during this time are available now. Please visit www.nationalrail.co.uk to plan your journey or Train Service Information to view and download your timetable.

There will also be works on a number of weekends throughout 2017 which will also reduce the number of trains in service. To check your journey at weekends, please visit Planned Engineering Works

During August, the impact on your journey will vary depending on when and where you travel but as fewer trains will be running your journey might be changed in the following ways, even if you are not travelling into London:

  • The majority of stations will have fewer train services
  • Services and stations will be busier than usual, especially in the morning and evening peaks on weekdays
  • Some journeys are likely to take longer
  • There will be queuing systems outside some stations
  • A small number of stations will be closed
  •  Other operators’ services will also be busier while passengers take alternative routes, including London Underground.

Please plan ahead by selecting all the stations you typically use - such as your home and work location - from the drop down list above to get more detailed information. 

There will be changes to your journeys but we are doing everything we can to reduce inconvenience and make your journey as smooth as possible, including:

  • Run longer trains throughout the day to provide more space and help you travel outside of the busiest times
  • Temporarily open platforms 20-24 (the former Waterloo International Terminal) to reduce some of the impact of closing platforms 1-9
  • Continue to provide information in advance to help you plan your journey
  • Work round the clock to finish the works as quickly as possible

Below, you will find more information on the improvements these works will provide for our passengers.

Thank you. 

What is the Waterloo & South West Upgrade?

We are investing over £800million to provide the biggest package of improvements for passengers travelling on the railway to and from London Waterloo for decades.

The number of passenger journeys on this line has more than doubled in the last twenty years to 234million and is expected to increase by a further 40% by 2043.

 

At London Waterloo we are working to:

  • Create a spacious, modern and accessible station concourse by rebuilding the former Waterloo International Terminal.
  • Increase services by bringing platforms 20–24 back into use and introducing modern facilities along with new track and signalling.
  • Allow longer ten-carriage trains to run to suburban routes by extending platforms 1–4.

Across the network, the Waterloo & South West Upgrade will bring:

  • Longer platforms for longer trains, at a number of stations on the Reading line.
  • 30 brand new trains, providing 150 extra carriages between London Waterloo and Windsor.
  • New technology to make trains more efficient and improve punctuality.
  • Improvements to depots and maintenance facilities to look after the network’s biggest ever fleet of trains.

This is the biggest investment to this railway for decades. It will provide a bigger and better London Waterloo, with improved facilities and also provide space for 30% more passengers during the busiest times of the day. This investment will also pave the way for providing more space and journeys for longer distance passengers in the near future.
