If you’ve had to head up to London recently you may have found it a bit arduous at best when travelling by train. This has been due to landslips caused by the huge amount of rainfall we’ve had over the last couple of months. The good news is that the delays that commuters and other travellers from Hastings to London have had to endure are nearly over.
SouthEastern have today informed Business in Hastings that the Hastings to London line will be partially reopened over the weekend and fully operational on Monday 3rd March.
This means no more replacement bus services and journey times should go back to what they were during normal service. Incidentally there have been three landslips, one near Battle, another at Stonegate and also at Wadhurst.
Here’s what’s happening this weekend and next week.
- The line between Wadhurst and Robertsbridge will be running as normal from Saturday 1st March 2014.
- A replacement bus service will continue over the weekend for the other stations mentioned above.
- The line is expected to be fully open on Monday 3rd March 2014 and normal service is expected to resume.
