Disruption to services due to a fault with the electrical third rail between Gatwick Airport & Three Bridges

Earlier this morning, reports were received of a small fire on a section of track outside Gatwick Airport. This fire is now out. Whilst the cause of the fire is unclear, the result is that the electrical third rail, running rail, and surrounding cables have become damaged.

While this equipment is repaired, trains are unable to use all of the lines through Gatwick Airport. Network Rail, who own and maintain the signalling and track, are attending the problem and will be providing updates to us.

Gatwick Express services may be delayed or cancelled at short notice.  Some will call additionally at Clapham Junction which may add additional time to your journey.

To help you to complete your journey as quickly as possible, Gatwick Express tickets are also being accepted on Thameslink and Southern train services between Brighton and London Victoria.
