Engineering to cause Easter commuting havoc for Southeastern users

Easter engineering is going to mean an unhappy holiday period for some Bexley commuters who use Southeastern train services.
From Good Friday (March 29) to Easter Monday (April 1), engineering work is happening between London Bridge, Lewisham, Kidbrooke and Hither Green, meaning New Cross, St Johns and Lewisham stations will be closed for the four-day break.
Replacement bus services will operate between Charlton and Dartford via Lewisham, Blackheath and Bexleyheath.
Charing Cross to Gravesend services will operate between Hither Green and Gravesend. For those travelling from Charing Cross to Sevenoaks, a change will be required at Orpington.
A Southeastern spokeswoman said: “Network Rail is conducting major engineering work over the Easter period as part of the Thameslink upgrade work. Southeastern services will be affected.
“We will be running a weekend timetable over the four days and services running through this area will be replaced by buses or will be diverted to and from London Victoria.
“We advise any passengers travelling over this period to check our website (southeasternrailway.co.uk) or National Rail Enquiries for a full list of service alterations. Valid tickets will also be accepted on London Underground tube stations.”
Ticket holders will also be able to use tube, bus and DLR services.
