Train travel over Bank Holiday

Passengers in Sussex are advised to only travel if necessary, over Early May Bank Holiday weekend Govia Thameslink Railway

• Passengers should only travel if they have to over the Early May Bank Holiday
• Network Rail’s engineering works will affect some routes while a reduced timetable continues to operate for those who rely on rail services

Network Rail is advising passengers to continue following Government advice and only use public transport if they need to. Vital engineering works will affect train services between Three Bridges and Brighton/Lewes this weekend. A reduced timetable continues to operate for those who need to use rail services.

This programme of work will allow Network Rail to deliver more reliable infrastructure, improved facilities and better services for passengers. The rail industry has operated a reduced number of services for passengers who absolutely need to travel during the coronavirus lockdown, while ensuring rail freight services can continue to move critical goods such as medicine and food to hospitals and supermarkets.
