Details of planned engineering works on the Thameslink network.
To maintain and improve the railway, Network Rail carries out regular planned engineering works on our network.
This work is usually done at weekends, on bank holidays and after 10pm during the week – but major work may also affect services at other times.
You should always check if unplanned engineering works will affect your journey.

As part of the government sponsored Thameslink Programme, Network Rail are rebuilding London Bridge mainline rail station to provide more space, improved connections to more destinations and more reliable services. The rail and tube station will remain open during the work.
Until 2018, there will be long and short term changes to train services as major track work takes place around London Bridge station.
