As Christmas edges closer, so does the reality of having to go out and shop.

However, if you're planning on using trains to get to the shops this weekend, you may face some problems.

This Sunday, there engineering works will be affecting Southeastern trains on several lines.

The first will be between Hither Green and Petts Wood, which will take place between 2.10am Sunday morning, and 2.30pm Sunday afternoon. Trains that normally run between Sevenoaks and London will not be able to stop at Lewisham during this time, and may be delays.

The second block will take place in the Herne Hill area from 10pm Sunday evening, until 5am Monday morning. During this time, trains will be diverted, and will not stop at:


Herne Hill

West Dulwich

Sydenham Hill

Penge East

Kent House

Buses will replace trains between London Victoria and Bromley South.

As well as engineering works, Cannon Street will be closed on Sunday.

There will be no trains to or from London Cannon Street, trains will instead be diverted to Charing Cross.

Replacement buses will run between Lewisham & Charlton via Greenwich.
