Line closures:

Between Saturday 16 – Sunday 24 February 2019

And several weekends up to May 2019, the lines will be closed between:

Three Bridges and Brighton

Three Bridges and Lewes

This will mean significant changes to train services across the Southern, Gatwick Express and Thameslink networks and longer journey times for some passengers. No trains will run between Three Bridges and Brighton or between Three Bridges and Lewes on these dates. Brighton and stations to the west will have trains to and from London, but these will be diverted via Littlehampton and Horsham. There will be no direct trains to London from Lewes or Eastbourne between these dates.

Ticket acceptance:
During the closures rail tickets will be accepted on a wide range of alternative rail and bus services. We will bring you more information on exactly where your ticket will be accepted nearer the time.
