An emergency bus service has been arranged for passengers also using stations at Kemsley, Swale Halt and Queenborough.
Southeastern said this morning : "Due to a fault with the bridge at Swale trains are currently unable to travel between Sittingbourne and Sheerness."
It had been hoped repairs would have allowed services to begin again with the 10.25am train from Sittingbourne to Sheerness but the train company has tweeted: "Unfortunately the bridge at Swale is still experiencing difficulties and the planned service will now not run."
Engineers repaired the fault at 11am. The first train expected to run over the bridge will be the 11.25am from Sittingbourne to Sheerness.
