Nine day closure affecting all trains via Horsham
There will also be five weekends of engineering closures in July, September and October.
Don’t get caught out, please check back regularly.
We’re investing £750m in the Sussex Upgrade Plan to improve the network for passengers. By replacing ageing infrastructure, we’ll reduce delays and make the railway safer.
As part of the plan, we’re carrying out essential engineering work to make the Arun Valley line safer and more reliable. This will allow for future passenger growth and improve passenger journeys.

Rail replacement bus services will be running during these line closures.

Please wear a face covering and follow the latest government travel advice when using rail replacement bus services.
Please note that non-folding cycles cannot be carried on replacement buses.
When we provide rail replacement buses or coaches for planned disruption, we use accessible vehicles. In any circumstances when this is not possible, our Assisted Travel and frontline teams will always identify an alternative journey plan to enable you to complete your journey.

If you do wish to travel, please note you will need to allow extra time for your journey. Replacement bus services have been arranged but please remember that capacity may be restricted due to the government’s coronavirus travel advice.
Information regarding any on-the-day disruption or unplanned alterations, including real-time travel advice will be available from these websites:
The station car parks at Arundel and Crawley will be closed on all days when rail closures are taking place. This is to allow for the safe operation of rail replacement buses. If you are planning on driving to these stations, you will need to find alternative parking, or you may find it easier to use a different nearby station.
There will also be reduced number of spaces available in the car park at Horsham station during these works. This is to allow engineers space to carry out the track upgrades.
