Only GWR services at Reigate during Southern strike


reigate station

Only GWR services will be calling at Reigate during the Southern conductors’ strike taking place on Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 September.

As before, travellers to and from Reigate will need to change at Redhill or elsewhere, such as Dorking, to get north or south.

At Redhill there will again be a limited Southern service as explained on operator GTR’s strike information webpage:

“A revised timetable [:]  Southern and Gatwick Express service will operate between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport / Brighton. Thameslink services are expected to run to the normal timetable. Earlswood and Salfords stations will have no service. Coulsdon South, Merstham, Horley and Redhill will only be served at certain times of day.

Services are still expected to be very busy on these routes and you are advised to allow longer for your journey, to avoid peak times and to avoid planning to travel on the last trains of the day – if you are unable to board services we will not be able to arrange alternative transport.”

Timetables and other information, including ticket acceptance by other operators and compensation, are also displayed on that page.

GTR also recommends using its live running service before travelling.

The company say that it hopes to run its revised (= normal revised) timetable on Friday.

Station staff, who at some stations despatch trains, were also due to be striking on the Wednesday, but that action has been called off.
