On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Lewisham station will be closed except for the DLR station for essential engineering works.

If you're planning to use Southeastern services from Lewisham tomorrow to beat the strike, use the DLR instead. Greenwich station will be open instead for Southeastern services to London Bridge and Cannon Street.

Saturday 14th January:

Southern: No service except for the 0558 and 0628 to London Bridge, plus the 2358, 0020 and 0035 from London Bridge. A replacement bus service from Victoria leaves at 2356 arriving at 0128. The 185 is a faster option at that time.

London Overground: Normal service.

Southeastern (Hayes line): Normal service.

Thameslink (Crofton Park/Catford): Blackfriars to Sevenoaks only.

Sunday 15th January:

Southern: No service.

London Overground: Normal service.

Southeastern: Normal service.

Thameslink: Early morning services diverted to Victoria. First train to Blackfriars at 0914.

This upcoming Thursday January 12th, the Elizabeth line between Abbey Wood and Paddington will be closed for industrial action, so there will be no interchange between the Overground and the Elizabeth line at Whitechapel. Tube services from Whitechapel and Canada Water will operate normally.

Presumably the lack of Southern services at weekends is tied in with the work at Victoria? Or is it something else? Is there a risk that Southern on this line becomes weekday only?

Yes it's all due to the Victoria works, which leads to their trains being diverted into London Bridge, so we lose our platform slots.

That's interesting to read the Overground will be operating a normal weekday service on the strike days now. What were the conditions that gave rise to the strange compromise where the Overground ran a more infrequent service, which terminated at around 6pm, on strike days?

The latest strikes are ASLEF drivers only, so RMT signallers will still be at work

During RMT strikes, the Overground service ends around 6pm to allow trains to be stabled before signalling cover ends.
