The closures are in place for ongoing engineering works

Ongoing engineering works are set to close three London terminals this weekend, with some remaining services reduced to a replacement bus service.

Across the weekend, buses will be running to Charing Cross for any passengers on the Dartford via Sidcup and Hayes via Lewisham lines, while a similar service will run to London Cannon Street for anyone expecting to use the Orpington via Lewisham line.

Engineering works by Network Rail between Hither Green and Grove Park / Dartford will close the line across the weekend, meaning another bus replacement service will be in place between Lewisham and Dartford via Sidcup and Grove Park.

Charing Cross services to Hayes, Tunbridge Wells and Orpington will not run on Saturday.

Trains between London Charing Cross and Ramsgate / Dover Priory are diverted to start at London Victoria, calling at Bromley South and Orpington.

On Sunday, Waterloo East and London Bridge will be closed along with Charing Cross, with most trains diverted to London Cannon Street.
