Major changes to train service for Charlton game

31 March 2015

Four days of travel disruption over the Bank Holiday weekend

We would like to advise supporters travelling to Millwall's home game with Charlton Athletic this Friday that there will be major changes to train services into London from Kent and the south east as the Thameslink Programme carries out improvement work over all four days of the Bank Holiday.
Those travelling to The Den may need to take an alternative route and your journey may take longer.
Service changes
Some of the changes are listed below but we would suggest you check at National Rail Enquiries for full details. 
• No Southeastern services will run to London Bridge except Hastings services, which will operate via Tonbridge, Redhill and East Croydon.
• There will be no trains to or from London Charing Cross, Waterloo East, or Cannon Street. Services from Kent and south east London will be diverted to or from Blackfriars and Victoria, or will start and terminate at New Cross. 
• No Southeastern services will operate between Deptford and Charlton via Greenwich. Replacement bus services will operate between Lewisham and Charlton via Greenwich.
• Southern services between London Bridge and Horsham will start and terminate at East Croydon. 
• Network Rail improvement work will also affect other Southeastern services, with no services operating between Swanley and Faversham via Sittingbourne and Maidstone to Gravesend. 
• There will be changes to other rail services across London during the Easter period. 

Road closure: London Bridge area 
• From 01.00 on Friday 3rd April until 05.00 on Tuesday 7th April Tooley Street will be closed to traffic.
• Pedestrian access will be maintained on the north side of the road at all times.
• The purpose of this closure is to allow a crane, which will be positioned on Tooley Street, to lift large beams into site. For safety reasons the road will not be open whilst this work is undertaken.
