Network Rail has announced that the majority of the rail network in Sussex will be open as usual this Christmas and New Year as improvement work is targeted at times that have less impact on passengers.
Passengers are advised to continue to check before they travel as there will be changes to services on a few routes due to engineering works which will affect Sussex.
Over the Christmas period, Network Rail engineers will be carrying out bridge works on Sanderstead Road bridge.
The work will be carried out in several parts between 26 December to 1 January and replacing the structure will extend the life of the bridge
What did the officials say?
Shaun King, route director, Sussex said:
“The work we are doing this Christmas will mean a better, more reliable railway for passengers when they return to work in the New Year.
“The railway is quieter at Christmas which is why we do our major work then, but we know it’s still a busy time for people visiting family and friends so please check before you travel. We have plenty of people at our stations in the run up to and over the break, who are on hand to help.”
