Southeastern advise of possible train delays at Hollingbourne due to high winds.

Hollingbourne Parish Council have received the following information about train services in the Hollingbourne area on Saturday 2nd November. Please Read More for further information.

Very high winds in the South East of England are expected to disrupt rail services tomorrow (Saturday 2nd November), especially in coastal areas.

To ensure that our trains and passengers can travel safely, Network Rail will impose a speed restriction on some routes from around 09:00. The speed restriction will have the greatest effect on Southeastern services in Kent and East Sussex, and many trains will take longer than usual to complete their journeys. Our mainline and Highspeed services will be most affected.

To provide a more reliable service, we will reduce the frequency of trains on some routes and change the stopping patterns on others. This will affect services across the Southeastern network.

The detail of these timetable changes will be available on the Southeastern journey planner from this evening (Friday 1st November). If you’re planning to travel on Saturday, you should check before they travel.
