Govia is warning of a ‘severely limited’ rail service this weekend and will be busing Thameslink customers to Great Northern routes.

Great Northern trains are expected to be busier than usual on Sunday as Govia warns of a reduced Thameslink service.

The train operator states online: “A shortage of train crew and planned engineering work mean that a severely limited Thameslink service will be running on Sunday, January 29.

“Customers are advised to use alternative routes to travel, wherever possible.”

Buses will run on the following routes to link Thameslink customers to Great Northern routes:

Bedford and Luton, calling at all stations

Luton and Hitchin

Harpenden and Welwyn Garden City

St Albans and Hatfield

Govia has also highlighted the following alterations: “An hourly service will run between London St Pancras International and Bedford.

“Services are expected to be very busy and customers are advised to use alternative routes where possible.

“Trains will not run between London St Pancras International and London Blackfriars.

“You will need to use London Underground or London Bus services (Route number 45 and 63) to cross from London St Pancras “International to London Blackfriars.

“Trains will not run to or from Sutton / Wimbledon.

“Trains between West Hampstead and Sevenoaks will run between London Blackfriars and Sevenoaks only.

“Trains between Brighton and London Bridge will run between London Bridge and Three Bridges only.”
