Southern Railway – revised timetable for ASLEF drivers’ overtime ban

Southern Railway – revised timetable for ASLEF drivers’ overtime ban

Please see below information from Southern Railway

Southern Railway plans to operate a revised timetable to give passengers more reliable services if drivers belonging to the union ASLEF begin a proposed overtime ban on Thursday 29 June.

The rail firm plans to operate 75% of its weekday services on Thursday and Friday, 29 and 30 June, and is working to improve on this service level from Monday 3 July. This will create a timetable with stability and consistency. Passengers are advised to expect a reduced service on certain routes and to allow extra time for their journeys.

More information is available at www.southernrailway.com/dispute.

Online journey planners for Thursday 29 and Friday 30 will be updated on Tuesday 27, and later in the week for Monday 3 July onwards.

In summary:

Thursday and Friday, 29 and 30 June: Most routes will retain a Southern train service, including Seaford. On other routes, we have arranged ticket acceptance with other operators. Key alterations include:

  • No off-peak Gatwick Express service between Gatwick Airport and Brighton (but a limited peak service will operate)
  • Gatwick Express services will operate to an amended timetable between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport
  • No Southern service to/from Beckenham Junction
  • No service between East Croydon and Milton Keynes Central via Kensington Olympia (a limited peak service will operate between Clapham Junction and Watford Junction)
  • No direct service between London and either Portsmouth or Southampton (a change of trains will be required)
  • Very limited peak services between Tulse Hill, Peckham Rye and London Bridge
  • No Southern peak-only service to/from Guildford
  • No Southern peak-only service to/from Wimbledon
  • An hourly service will operate between Seaford and Brighton
  • A reduced peak service between Ashford International and Hastings

 

Weekends, from 1 July: Southern will run its normal timetable but services will be reduced and the number will vary from weekend to weekend. For information about these services, please visit www.southernrailway.com/dispute.

Mondays to Fridays from Monday 3 July until further notice: Most routes will retain a Southern train service and significantly more services will be running from Monday 3 July than on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 June.
