Rail passengers looking to travel from Sussex to London in the fortnight after Christmas could see more than an hour added to their journey times.

Due to engineering work between East Croydon and Redhill a rail replacement bus service will run between the two stations from Boxing Day until January 4 as well as between Gatwick Airport/Three Bridges and East Grinstead.

According to train operator Southern journey times are expected to be ‘increased by over 60 minutes’.

Southern’s website reads: “A revised Southern train and replacement bus service will operate between London and Gatwick Airport from Saturday 26 December 2015 until Sunday 3 January 2016 inclusive.”
