Work to repair and rebuild the railway has been taking place since December 2015, when the line had to be closed after it became severely damaged.
Engineers are working to build a new 235-metre-long viaduct, supported by 134 concrete columns. The work is ahead of schedule and Network Rail is working towards completing the project for the autumn.
We understand the impact this closure has had on passengers, and our engineers have been working round the clock to finish the repairs and get trains running again between Dover and Folkestone.
We had set aside time for interruptions to the project through bad weather and other issues which can occur on major projects, but so far that contingency has not proved necessary. As a result we are much further ahead than we had expected and have seen the overall cost of the project decrease.
As soon as we have a firm date for reopening the railway line, we will let passengers know.
