Commuters across Surrey and south London will have their journeys to work disrupted next week, as London Bridge station closes for redevelopment.

Services there ground to a halt earlier today, and will not pick up again until Monday, September 1.

Passengers are advised to check their routes before travelling, as the closure of London Bridge means there is a revised service on the rest of the Southern network.

Some journeys operated by Southern are being diverted to London Victoria, some will end short of their original destination, and others won’t run at all.

First Capital Connect (FCC) services will via Elephant and Castle.

All commuters will still be able to get to any destination as alternative travel arrangements will be in place.

London Overground, Underground, London Buses and Tramlink, will all accept Southern and  FCC tickets on any valid route.

The redevelopment of London Bridge station is part of the £6.5bn Thamelink Programme, which will bring in more robust tracks, and new signalling to offer more reliable arrival and departure times.

Booklets giving details of what train services will be running, and how to get to London Bridge via alternate routes are available at all Southern stations.

Rich and Twick now seems to consider any South London story as newsworthy. Trains from The Borough don't go near London Bridge. As previuosly pointed out why show a SW Train.
