South Eastern Rail – strike action

Strike action by the RMT union is due to take place on our network next week on Thursday 16 and Saturday 18 March.

We’re sorry, there will be a limited service running on our network and some routes will be closed. Please only travel if necessary. If you are travelling expect some disruption, plan ahead and check your entire journey.

We’ll be running our normal timetable on the days either side of the strikes, except on Friday 17 March when trains will start later from 07:00.

Journey planners for Thursday 16 and Friday 17 March are now available.

Journey planners for Saturday 18 March will be available on Tuesday 14 March.

If the strike action is cancelled at short notice, we may not be able to switch back to our normal timetable immediately. Rail services are built in complex, interrelated IT systems covering fleet, crew schedules and rosters and so it takes some time to get everything back into place.

Ticketing and refunds

For ticketing and refund information please visit our strike action web page. When trains are running, you travelled and were delayed for 15 minutes or more, you are entitled to Delay Repay compensation
