Southeastern Trains disruption in Kent this weekend due to engineering works

A weekend of rail disruption is expected across Kent this weekend with lines shut and buses replacing trains.

No trains will run between Rochester and Rainham due to engineering work taking place on Saturday and Sunday closing all lines through the Medway towns.

The high speed train from Faversham to St Pancras will be diverted to run via Ramsgate and Dover Priory.

Services through Sole Street will terminate at Rochester before recommencing from Rainham along the coastal loop to Dover.

Trains to and from Sheerness will operate to an amended timetable to connect with changes to times at Sittingbourne.

Thameslink says it will be running a changed service on Saturday with some early morning and late trains starting and terminating at Rochester.

But most will not run between Dartford and Rainham and passengers are advised to use Southeastern trains instead.

None of the company's services will run on Sunday with customers told to use Southeastern trains between London Bridge and Rochester and join the replacement bus service between Rochester and Rainham and between Lewisham and Dartford.

The work is due to be completed on Sunday night.
