Passengers using a number of Souteastern services are facing problems this morning due to over-running engineering work.

Weekend work was supposed to finish at 7.30am on Monday morning, but the rail operator has said work could cause delays until midday.

Replacement bus services, diversions and revised services are affecting services via Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and Orpington.

No trains are stopping at Hildenborough.

A spokesperson from Southeastern said: “There will be some major changes to Southeastern services in the area, especially before 10:00 but possibly later.

The following changes are in place:

Trains between Hastings and London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street will be diverted from Tonbridge via Redhill and East Croydon, not stopping at Hildenborough, Sevenoaks or Orpington. Some trains will end / start their journeys at London Bridge.

Trains between Dover / Ramsgate / Canterbury West and London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street via Ashford International and Tonbridge will be diverted via Maidstone East and will not stop at Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks or Orpington.

A revised service will run between Sevenoaks and London calling at stations via Orpington.

A revised service will run between Ashford International and Tonbridge and you may need to change trains at Tonbridge for stations to London.

A replacement bus service will operate between Tonbridge and Sevenoaks for passengers travelling to and from intermediate stations.
