Southern Railway have cancelled all services to Victoria until the 10th January due to staff shortages.
It’s an unprecedented move and comes as Omicron hits staff numbers. A large number of service alterations are in place including no Gatwick Express services and now trains. Details are on Southern’s page here.
Also cancelled in their entirety are services from East Croydon to London Bridge via Forest Hill and Epsom to London Bridge via Carshalton Beeches.
Certain services will be diverted into London Bridge, though stations such as Battersea Park, Clapham Junction and Wandsworth Common will see no service whatsoever.
The new Northern Line extension to Battersea Power Station may be useful to some in those areas, though many passengers will be hit.
In contrast, Southeastern have no restrictions as yet and journey planners currently show a good service – though services are severely reduced due to engineering works halting all services through Lewisham.
