Train services suspended for emergency tunnel repairs

Train services are suspended between Haywards Heath and Three Bridges as Balcombe tunnel is closed for the rest of today due to emergency repairs.

As a result, there is a reduced service operating as Southern Rail are unable to run trains between Haywards Heath and Three Bridges in both directions.

Brighton Main Line services are running between Brighton and Haywards Heath where replacement buses are running between Haywards Heath and Three Bridges.

North of Three Bridges, services to and from London are starting/terminating at Three Bridges/Gatwick Airport.

The journey time from Brighton to London using the replacement bus service will be extended by at least 60 minutes, but may be longer depending on queuing times for buses.

Therefore, passengers travelling to London from Brighton are advised to travel via Barnham. This will extend journey times by approximately 60 minutes.

Gatwick Express services are calling additionally at East Croydon and Clapham Junction in both directions.
