From TFL’s weekly weekend travel email:
This leaves us with only 2 trains an hour on Saturday and a bit of a mystery on Sunday (see below which I’m trying to get clarification on from Southern!
Forest Hill to London Bridge at 43 and 13 past each hour from 0643 to 2313
London Bridge to Forest Hill at 10 and 40 past each hour from 0610 to 2340 then 0020 & 0035
In addition to no London Overground services National Rail Enquires also show the following engineering works information for Southern:
This indicates we should have a half hourly rail service to/from New Cross Gate/East Croydon from 0800 to 2000, and replacement bus services between 0630 and 0800 and between 2000 and 2345. However neither the National Rail Enquiries Journey Planner or Southern’s show any of these services at all! And they don’t show any services running from New Cross Gate to London Bridge either. I suspect they expect people to walk to New Cross for South Eastern services! I’ve therefore asked Southern to confirm exactly what is running and will update when I have a response!
UPDATE: 31 July 1030
Although Southern have advised they are investigating the issue I raised with them yesterday I haven’t heard any further from them yet. However on checking National Rail Enquiries again this morning they are now showing bus or train services to New Cross Gate and East Croydon depending on time with connecting services elsewhere. It’s rather complicated to summarise so I would recommend anyone needing to travel on Sunday checks National Rail Journey Planner!
The weekend shutdowns on London Overground look likely to continue until the bank weekend of 29/30/31 August. .
