Southern Railway: Updated Strike Information

Southern Railway: Updated Strike Information

Southern Railway – Updated Strike Information 5th January 2017

Update from Southern Rail:

The ASLEF union has announced changes in dates for its strike action this month and now plans strikes by its train driver members on:

  • Tuesday 10, Wednesday 11 and Friday 13 January 2017
  • Tuesday 24, Wednesday 25 and Friday 27 January 2017

We regret that there will be no Southern Railway services on these days.

Train services will also be affected severely on non-strike days by the union’s continuing overtime ban, and in addition on the Thursdays (12 and 26 January) and Saturdays (14 and 28 January) of the weeks above because of displacement of trains on the prior strike days.

We are working to provide the best service possible on these dates, and will provide service information as soon as possible on our web site at We advise passengers strongly to check train times shortly before they travel.

Please note that on strike days Lower School pupils will have a staggered departure to Eastbourne. If you drop off and collect your child please try to use Bexhill seafront near Sutton Place, TN40 1PD, to ease congestion on Ashdown Road.
