Southern service update - RMT industrial action 1 & 4 September

GTR have released further details of the service they plan to run on Friday 1 September and Monday 4 September during the RMT’s industrial action. They are planning to run a normal service on most Southern routes, although they are asking passengers to check before they travel for updates on the day.

Southern and Gatwick Express run over 2,200 services on a non-strike day and most services will operate to the normal timetable.

Gatwick Express will operate a full service between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport / Brighton. Thameslink will also run a full service between London Blackfriars / London Bridge and Brighton.

A full Southern service will run except for those trains listed below:

  • West London line services will not operate
  • A number of services on other routes (predominantly Coastway services) will not operate
  • Some peak hour services between Ashford International and Hastings will not run
  • The four trains a day that run in each direction between Leatherhead and Guildford will not run
