TRAIN users are being warned to prepare themselves for disruption as Gravesend station closes for 15 days to allow Network Rail to carry out a £19 million upgrade.

The station in Rathmore Road will be closed from Sunday, December 22 to Monday, January 6 and the closure will affect all metro and high speed services that normally run.

The project is the final stages and longer trains of up to 12-cars will be able to stop at the station and it will provide up to 3,500 extra seats and more space for passengers.

Rathmore Road car park has now shut until January 13.

Alison Nolan, a spokeswoman for Southeastern said: "The work at Gravesend is critical for us to be able to increase capacity and run longer trains on the network, but we know the work to make this happen will result in some inconvenience for our passengers.

"We've spent a great deal of time working together with Network Rail, Transport for London and local bus operators to develop a range of alternative travel arrangements for customers during this time."
