Passengers are being reminded by Network Rail to continue to follow the guidance as it carries out over the Bank Holiday Weekend to upgrade the railway in Sussex.

If a journey by train must be made, face masks and social distancing guidelines must be adhered to.
Shaun King, route director for Sussex, said “Network Rail will be working hard this late bank holiday weekend to improve the railway in Sussex and provide better and more reliable services. Passengers have shown themselves to be incredibly understanding while we invest heavily to improve our railway and I’d like to thank them in advance for their support. I urge passengers to only travel if you have to and check your journey ahead of time.”
Chris Fowler, Customer Services Director for Southern and Gatwick Express, said “We also thank our passengers who need to travel over the weekend for their patience while Network Rail carry out this vital work to further improve the reliability of services to and from Sussex.

Please follow the government advice to travel only if absolutely necessary, and avoid public transport if at all possible. If you really have to use a train or bus, it is important to check routes and times before you set off, follow social distancing guidance and wear a face covering if you can.”
