Delays are expected on services between Gatwick Airport and East Croydon until 11am this morning (January 22), Southern Railways has announced.

The delays come as a result of engineering works which were not finished on time. Although the works were finished this morning, a Southern Water spokesperson has warned passengers to expect disruption until 11am between Gatwick Airport and East Croydon while services recover.

They made clear that delays between thirty minutes and an hour in affected areas are possible, that short notice cancellations are possible, and some services may skip past certain stops or terminate at a different station than usual, all of which is taking place in addition to disruption caused by Storm Isha.

A Southern Railways spokesperson said: “It is strongly recommend that you travel later today. If you do travel now, then Gatwick Express, Southern and Thameslink advise allowing at least an extra 30 minutes to complete your journey and please ensure that you check before you travel. For most journeys you should be able to travel using your normal route, although you may need to change trains en route.”
