Heathrow and Gatwick Easter rail disruption

24 Mar 2016 by BusinessTraveller

Passengers travelling to or from Gatwick and Heathrow airports over the Easter weekend should be aware of service suspensions and timetable changes.

The Southern-operated Gatwick Express service is suspended between Friday March 25 and Monday March 28.

Indeed no Southern rail services will operate between London Victoria and Gatwick during this period, although the airport will be served by Southern trains running to and from London Bridge, and Thameslink services to and from Blackfriars.

Meanwhile the Heathrow Express will run once every half an hour (instead of every 15 minutes) on Friday March 25, Saturday March 26 and Monday March 28, due to Crossrail engineering works.

On the Underground, the Picaddilly line is suspended today (Thursday March 24) due to strike action, but will be open as normal over the Easter weekend.,,
