Travel update: Disruption on trains at Wimbledon and St Pancras

14:22 14 February 2013

Ongoing overhead wire problems are continuing to cause disruption for commuters at St Pancras International.

Cables came down at Radlett in Hertfordshire yesterday afternoon, affecting passengers on First Capital Connect, Southeastern, and East Midlands Trains services.

Journeys on East Midlands Trains between Bedford and London St Pancras International are currently being delayed by up to an hour.

The electric trains run by First Capital Connect are only able to run on half of the lines between Radlett and St Albans, but four trains an hour are currently travelling between Bedford and Brighton

Trains on the Wimbledon to Sutton loop are running between Wimbledon or Sutton and London Blackfriars only. Passengers travelling between Bedford, Luton, St Albans and Wimbledon or Sutton are advised to change at London Blackfriars

As a result, commuters have been warned to expect an hour to be added to their journeys.

To cope with cancellations between Sevenoaks and Kentish Town, Southeastern are running additional services between Sevenoaks and London Victoria.

Services between Ashford and London Victoria are calling additionally at Eynsford and Shoreham on an hourly basis.

Affected passengers can use their tickets on alternative services.

Meanwhile, there are delays to journeys via Wimbledon because of emergency engineering works. They are expected to last until this afternoon.

South West Trains services to and from Dorking are cancelled until further notice but passengers travelling on this route can use Southern services between Dorking and Clapham Junction / London Victoria until further notice.

The timetable was expected to return to normal by 2pm with trains calling at all stations.

A normal weekday service will operate from London Waterloo this evening.

First Great Western is accepting South West Trains tickets between Basingstoke, Reading and London Paddington. Tickets can also be used on London buses on all routes in Clapham, Wimbledon, Surbiton and Kingston.
