Redhill to Tonbridge Railway Line

Network Rail will be reopening the railway between Redhill and Tonbridge two weeks earlier than expected on Monday 16th March. Since the railway closed on 22nd December due to the landslip, Network Rail engineers and contractors BAM Nuttall have been working to repair the landslip, one of the largest in the history of this region’s railway, and Southern Rail have been running weekday shuttle trains from Edenbridge to Tonbridge, and buses over the rest of the route. The landslip occurred over a 30m section of embankment, where the railway is carried high over the River Eden and surrounding fields. It followed a month’s worth of rain in one week in December. A further 400m of railway is being shored up to prevent any further problems in the area. Network Rail wished to thank passengers for their patience and understanding throughout the closure.

Drainage and Flooding

The Parish Council is tackling Kent County Council about drainage problems, including blocked drains and gullies. We will update you when we have more information. If you would like to report any blocked drains or problem areas to the Parish Council for inclusion in the list of sites to be discussed with KCC, please contact the Clerk by email at Louise.leighclerk@hotmail.com.  Please ensure that you give full details of the problem including the exact location.

Potholes 

The recent heavy rains has caused havoc with our road network, and there are many potholes. Please either report these potholes to the Clerk, or go online at www.kent.gov.uk and report the fault on the interactive map.
