Train operator affected
ScotRail
Description

A landslip occurred between Kilmarnock and Dumfries following the severe weather caused by Storm Ciara. As all lines are closed, buses will continue to replace trains between Kilmarnock and Dumfries whilst repairs are undertaken.

The latest estimate is for the line to be fully reopened on Monday 16 March.

Additional Information:
Emergency works to repair a landslip beneath the railway between Kilmarnock and Dumfries will continue for a further four weeks. The section of line has been closed since Monday 10 February after storms caused the River Nith to wash away an embankment beneath the railway.

Engineers are working to repair the landslip beneath a 50m stretch of track near Holywood in Dumfriesshire. Firstly, the engineers have to construct a new road and compound to bring material to the site, to allow them to begin the process of stabilising and rebuilding the embankment. More information can be found here.

Between Redhill and Tonbridge

 
Train operator affected
Southern
Description

A landslip near the village of Godstone, on the line between Redhill and Tonbridge, has resulted in significant damage to the railway. The line is closed to allow for necessary repairs and is not expected to re-open until the end of March.

Customer Advice:

Reconstruction of the damaged embankment between Godstone and Edenbridge is progressing well. Buses will continue to replace trains through these stations until the line reopens.

Full information about how the train service is affected can be found here.

Our colleagues over at Network Rail have an explanation together with photographs showing the extent of the damage, and works required here.

What does this mean for me?

Please allow plenty of time to reach your destination - your journey will take longer than it usually would. You will need to use a replacement bus service or an alternative rail route for either all or part of your journey.

What service is available during the week, Monday to Friday?

A rail replacement bus service is running between Redhill, Nutfield (Memorial Hall), Godstone and Edenbridge, in place of cancelled trains.

Connecting trains run between Edenbridge, Penshurst, Leigh and Tonbridge in both directions, except for some very early and very late journeys, when buses are extended to or from Tonbridge.

Journeys to & from Nutfield:

  • If you're using Nutfield station, a separate minibus service is running between Nutfield station and Redhill, in both directions. This is because the Memorial Hall bus stops (served by full-size buses) are some distance from the station.
  • If you're travelling from Edenbridge or Godstone and you need Nutfield station, please either travel to Nutfield (Memorial Hall) on the full-size buses, or travel to Redhill and change there for the minibus service to Nutfield Station.
  • If you're travelling from Nutfield towards Godstone or Edenbridge, please either use the bus stops at Nutfield (Memorial Hall), or use the minibus service from Nutfield station to Redhill, changing there for the full-size buses towards Godstone and Edenbridge.

What service is available on weekends, Saturday and Sunday?

At weekends, a rail replacement bus service is running across the whole route between Redhill and Tonbridge (in both directions). The minibus service will also operate between Nutfield and Redhill stations.

Where can I board the replacement bus service?

You can view pick up and drop off locations by clicking here, or see the posters at your local station.

Please note that at Redhill, all buses and minibuses will drop off passengers near the rear entrance to the station on Redstone Hill. Step-free access is available opposite the Toby Carvery restaurant / Redstone Hill car park entrance, then via the walkway outside Platform 3; or under the large railway bridge and via the main station entrance on Princess Way.

Alternative route options and alternative car parks:

The following alternatives are available to you at no additional cost, regardless of the type of ticket you hold:

  • If you're travelling between Edenbridge, Penshurst or Leigh and stations in the London area, you may wish to use Southeastern services between Tonbridge, Hildenborough (near Leigh), London Bridge and London Charing Cross. From London Bridge or London Charing Cross, you can use Tube services to other London terminals at no additional cost.
  • If you're travelling between Redhill and Tonbridge, you can travel via London Bridge, using Thameslink services from Redhill, and Southeastern services between London Bridge and Tonbridge. The same applies in the opposite direction.
  • If you're travelling between Leigh, Penshurst or Edenbridge and East Croydon, alternative Southern trains on the Uckfield line serve Edenbridge Town, which is a 15 minute walk from Edenbridge station.
  • You may also use stations between Caterham and Purley.If you hold a valid car parking season ticket, you may park your car at alternative stations on the Southern routes listed above - subject to availability.

 

First Class is declassified on train services between Edenbridge and Tonbridge

You may use either Standard or First Class with any valid ticket for these trains.

If you already hold a First Class ticket for this route, please make sure you claim your refund here.
