Our new timetable from Sunday 11 January 2015, includes the service changes needed to accommodate this work and also provides new long-term improvements to provide extra services and new journey opportunities.
To find out which timetables you need, simply select your station below.
Please note this is a new timetable containing Southeastern services only, and does not mirror our current lines of route as connection information with other operators isn't available yet - for example trains from Sevenoaks to St Pancras via Otford and Catford, that timetable information will be published in October.
The feedback period for these draft timetables has now closed, however if you would like to make a further comment please contact our customer services team.
Over the next few months we will provide more detailed travel advice to help you plan your journey.
The Department for Transport, Transport for London and Train Operators are working together to agree ticketing arrangements for the longer term closures and discussions are ongoing. We will update passengers in early October.
