Landslip Near Newington To Affect Train Services

Landslip Near Newington To Affect Train Services

Train services between Sittingbourne and Rainham will be stopped from 9pm tonight as Southeastern carries out emergency repair work following a landslip on an embankment in the Newington area.

A number of other trains will also be affected, including the high speed service which will now operate between St Pancreas and Rainham. London Victoria services will only run between Gillingham and London Victoria and services from Ramsgate and Dover Priory will terminate and start back from Sittingbourne.

The Sittingbourne to Sheerness-On-Sea service will run as normal, following work to the Kingsferry Bridge part of the line earlier today.

Southeastern are advising customers to make their journey through the area before 9pm, if they can, as journeys will take longer and social distancing on replacement buses "may not always be possible".

As always, stay tuned to 106.9 SFM for the latest information.
