Speed restrictions to be imposed by Network Rail - Wednesday 1 July

Because of the very high temperatures forecast, Network Rail have advised us that they will be imposing speed restrictions across many parts of the Southeastern network tomorrow afternoon / evening. This is likely to cause disruption to train services, although we will be aiming to run all services.

We'll keep you updated with the latest information on our Live Running Page but if you can, you may want to avoid travelling between 13:00 and 19:00.

Please also remember to stay hydrated and carry a bottle of water with you.

Record-breaking high speed service

A record number of passenger journeys were made on Southeastern’s Javelin trains in 2014, the 5th anniversary year of the high speed link between Kent and London. 

More than 10.3 million journeys were made in 2014 and to meet rising passenger demand, the service has been extended to call at more stations. A new ‘coastal loop’ has also been introduced to increase journey opportunities for passengers on the East Kent coast.

Did you know? 

  • The trains are named after Britain’s top athletes including Dame Kelly Holmes and Sir Steve Redgrave. 
  • The train operates at a maximum speed of 140mph (225 km/h) – the same speed as the new Audi RS7 autonomous race car
