South-east London faces a week of travel disruption as London Bridge prepares to close.

No First Capital Connect or Southern services will be calling at the station from Saturday August 23-31 due to Thameslink Programme works. 

Thameslink says some stations and links, including Southeastern trains as well as both London Underground and Overground services, will be busier as a result. Much of south-east London will be affected.

The week comes as part of an ongoing project to regenerate London Bridge and improve the Thameslink route, a vital connection for many commuters.

However, the programme has been denounced by many suburban residents, with transport cuts in the south-east expected in 2018 as part of the scheme.

AFAIK Southeastern has only one route which is never late, the shuttle from Grove Park to Bromley North, which always leaves on time regardless of any commuters running across the footbridge from a late running connecting service.
