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.
