Major Christmas Disruption Expected On Brighton’s Railways

Expected service upgrades on the rail routes surrounding Brighton means there will be major changes to many routes across the whole of Christmas and into the new year.

The planned improvements mean that one of the major commuter routes is expected to be closed at the start of next year.

The work is going to mainly take place in the Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill areas, with little access for the many busy services that come through this line.

This will result in the delay or cancellation of many journeys, affecting passengers with destinations such as Brighton, Lewes and Three Bridges, with others possibly affected or delayed as a result.

There is also set to be disruption to other train lines and services in London, meaning that commuters will not only face delays within Brighton, but may also face many issues in the capital once they manage to navigate their way out of the city over the upcoming Christmas period.

Service providers warn that journeys during this upcoming time period will leave travellers needing significantly longer than expected to make their trips and therefore will need to check times and details in advance to avoid further issues.

Work will be done in conjunction with network rail and other transport providers to try and limit the impact and get their customers to their required destinations.

The work is claimed to be crucial for future delays to be avoided and assist in future projects such as Copyhold Junction, near Hayward’s Heath that is due to be rebuilt and given a brand-new track.

A new track will also be laid at Burgess Hill as part of the necessary works there.

One big closure will be from February 19th to 27th , when this major line will be closed and replaced instead with bus services.

Weekend closures will then follow after this main closure to continue to support the works.
